I spent more time outdoors than usual today since the weather was sunny and warm. At the end of the day I felt much lighter than usual. Almost giddy. And I had the following thought:
It used to be that people spent A LOT more time outdoors. Now we are often cramped up indoors, add to that, immersed in screens and technology. And even when we are outside we are often connected to our technological devices.
Maybe that’s why having a day spent so much outdoors (withOUT my smartphone) left me feeling so high. I always knew nature was healing. But maybe in this day and age when we often get so little of it, we actually feel a little drugged up when we spend time immersed in the outdoors.
