The best remedy for those who are afraid. Lonely, or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone, with nature. Because only then does one feel all is as it should be.
In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. And when we pay attention, we can understand everything better. 8 ways nature makes us happy.
Nature brings us to the present and helps us feel thankful. It also tells us about our past with evidence of it all around. It gives us something to look forward to.
A healing walk and time to sit in a green forest can be like a fairy tale. And the trees and ferns help us reflect on what is good.
Beautiful flowers make us feel happy.
The ocean gives the feeling like there is something more.
Lee Ann Womack’s song, I hope you dance –
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean –
is a reminder to be more humble, generous, and grateful.
The tide brings in things that eventually get washed away – like the problems we have.

8 Ways nature makes us happy. It teaches us:
Nature dishes out the worst weather, but we know the sun comes back. Sometimes it knocks us down but we won’t break.
The path less traveled takes you to places you never could have imagined.
We don’t have all the answers, so we keep learning.
Venture onto unknown trails, reflecting and connecting with yourself
Nature teaches us to be prepared for weather and circumstances we can’t control
There’s always gonna be another mountain, and your always gonna wanna make it move.
It ain’t about how fast you get there.
It ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side.
It’s the climb.
We have to accept things and not worry about what we can’t control.
Nature is the present. It’s beautiful, simple, and helps us to be grateful and mindful.
Learning the lessons that the previous seasons taught, help us put everything into perspective.
At the Winter Solstice, the wind is cold, trees are bare and all lies in stillness beneath blankets of snow.
Snow days. Skiing. Sledding. Pond skating. Snowshoeing. Hot Cocoa. Christmas festivals. Gluhwein. Sleigh rides. Lights. Christmas. Fires. No yard work. Outdoors. Giving. Food. Cheer.
Winter Can be dark and brutal. But we can submit and surrender to it instead of fighting and dreading it. Rest. Slow down. Have tea. Read. Light fires and candles. Just be. Find peace. Turn on the lamps in all your rooms at night so your house feels more welcoming.
Put your hand on your heart. Feel the beat for 1 minute or so. Feel grateful that it’s working.
Spring is when you feel like whistling, even with a shoe full of slush.
— Doug Larson
Maple sugaring. Blooms from the bulbs you planted last year. Lilacs. Forsythia. Daffodils. Tulips. Flowering trees. Bluebirds. Peepers. Singing birds. Screens in your windows. The smell of grass.
New growth, another chance, new opportunities, new beginnings
Spring has sprung the grass has riz.
I wonder where the flowers is.
The snow has melt. The trees have sprout.
Now why the heck ain’t it warmer out?
“Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.”
Carefree. Warmth. Your youth. Salty air. Longer days. School’s out. Freedom. Family. Swimming in the warm Atlantic Ocean. Bike rides. Hikes. Kayaks. Hammocks. Ice cream. Sunsets. Blueberries. The lake.
Fried clams. Carnivals. Cookouts. Warm rain. Thunder storms. Eating outside. Nighttime walks. Sea glass. Clam digging. Fishing. Crabbing. Lupines. Sand. Salty hair. Suntan lotion.
Starry nights. Festivals. Bare feet. Summer breezes. Concerts. Sprinklers. Happy hour. Cape Cod.
The possibilities are endless.
No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.
Foliage. Crisp, clean air. Sweaters. Jumping in the leaves. Fires. The most colorful season of the year. Apple picking. Pumpkin picking. Macintosh candles. Mums. Cornstalks. Hayrides. Halloween. Football (with 4 guys at home, I learned to like it😊). And, football food.
Change. You can change. Time to change. Lose bad habits and make good ones.
Let’s make a pact to see more nature
Nature just makes me happier. I love the seasons, but I don’t think I take advantage of them enough. Usually it’s a rush out the door for a quick run or walk to save driving time. But what am I saving up the time for? The woods are only 10 minute drive. The ocean is less than an hour. Everything is the way it’s supposed to be in nature. It can be brilliant, calm, beautiful, refreshing, dark, dreary, hopeful, or new. If it’s bad, I know that something good is just around the corner. If it’s good – I should see more of it. I’m going to try harder.
How about you? What do you love most about nature and the seasons?
