The best part about summer? Being surrounded by nature, of course! I spent most of my childhood being outdoors; camping, hiking, and swimming at my dad's old lake house. It's only natural that I find these to be some of my favorite childhood memories.
Life gets hectic at times...well, scratch that, most of the time life is hectic. We are so caught up in technology 24/7 that people are slowly loosing the ability to think for themselves and live in the moment. You need to keep the peace within you. My solution? Pull yourself away from it all and submerge yourself in mother nature. There is nothing more refreshing than the stillness and simplicity you will find outside, without work, without phones, without any technology whatsoever. Life is beautiful and you are the creator of your own happiness, why not spend it your most natural state?
"Mindfulness helps you go home to the present. Every time you go there and recognize a condition of happiness that you have, happiness comes."
