Why is it that nowadays we are so quick to press the reset button on our devices when they aren’t functioning properly but we won’t press the reset button in our minds and bodies when we’re stuck in a rut?
I know what you’re thinking… humans don’t come built with reset buttons….
That’s where you need to get creative!
In my opinion, the best way to recharge is to connect with Mother Nature, so that’s exactly what I did…for two and a half weeks.
I visited Denali National Park, took a seven-day cruise through the inner channel waterways from Seward, Alaska to Vancouver, Canada and visited the Butchart Gardens in Victoria. After that, I continued on my journey to Banff National Park, Lake Louise, and Jasper National Park.
I walked on glaciers, witnessed incredible wildlife, flew over picturesque lands in helicopters and seaplanes, and met the most amazing individuals on the way.
This was one of the most memorable vacations I have ever been on.
Living in Miami, Florida, the hustle and bustle of city life can be very exhilarating. The only problem is that after a while, city dwellers can easily get bogged down by the noise, pollution, and overpopulation. Unfortunately, all of these elements clutter the mind and body. In order to truly connect with yourself on a deeper and more spiritual level, you need to unclog all city build up.
This is where that metaphorical reset button comes in. Get out there and be one with the great outdoors! The air is crisper and cleaner, and the sounds are soothing and meditative. The experience is truly cleansing.
I know it can be hard to get away from the routine of your life, but you must also realise the importance of investing in yourself.
Studies show that connecting with nature boosts creativity and improves health. One study at the University of Kansas found that young people who backpacked for three days showed higher creativity and cognitive abilities. Also, people in hospitals who can see a natural landscape have been shown to get better faster.
Now, what are you waiting for? Go take a hike!
