I so needed this distraction today! I just got back from a great trip and am having the post vacation blues!! Ever get em’?!
This weeks WordPress Photo Challenge – “Where You Belong” – is such a great challenge for me. I feel like there are so many places I belong, but the place I always want to be is in nature!!
A good friend of mine and fellow blogger Miss Adventure Pants posted this the other day on her facebook page. Of course I ate the content up!
In this article it states:
“When we get closer to nature—be it untouched wilderness or a backyard tree—we do our overstressed brains a favor.”
I am living proof this is true!! I NEED to be in nature. Nature is my church. I need to see trees, breathe in clean air, and be far away from people when life gets overwhelming! My blood pressure and attitude are instantly adjusted – it’s crazy and wonderful – better than any drug on the market for sure.
Hope you enjoy the recent vacation pics that represent peace and serenity for thelifebus! Just looking at these makes me calm after a very stressful week back to reality.
