A common question.
Probably because it’s hard not to observe the weather, even from indoors.
Surprisingly only 7 percent of the average American’s life is spent outdoors.
Going from Neanderthal and through our evolution process to today’s being, our bodies biologically crave the outdoors.
Beyond exceptions, this makes sense why stress levels decrease, blood pressure becomes stable, and the chance of disease is lesser among those who spend more time outside.
Studies show that 5 minutes is enough to get a mental health boost.
For me, 5 hours a day isn’t enough.
My friend told me the other day about how him and his girlfriend took the book I co-created, Unknown, on a walk.
They enjoyed it. And funny because I followed shortly after, heading to a park yesterday to read it while sitting on the grass, with the sun light shining on my body.
The words and pictures, to me, the author, were magical.
Life is magic.
The wind, the rain, the snow.
The elements themselves are a thing of beauty.
For 5 minutes today (and everyday), step outside.
Both physically and mentally leave the confines of your settings and mind.
Marvel at the sky and scenes in front of you. As if it were for the first time you were seeing this world.
How beautiful is life?
How beautiful are you?
