Getting out in nature can refresh the mind and re-energize the body.  You can enjoy the outdoors at any time of the year, as long as you dress appropriately.  In fact, snow fall can be quieting, rain can be rejuvenating, the sun can be invigorating, and wind can be purifying.  If you’re short of time and can’t immerse yourself in nature, look around there are hints of nature everywhere.  If you find that your environment lacks natural elements, invest in a small plant or animal.  This will brighten your days and bring you closer to nature.
