City living does not truly allow you to escape the sounds that fill your your day. Many of us have accepted a life overwhelmed with work, stress, electronic devices and social media. Because of this, both adults and children have become disconnected from Nature.
It seems we have become so entwined with technology that "we fail to reap the benefits of simply playing in a neighbor’s yard, or at the local park, let alone the beauty and wonder of the great outdoors".
Mother Nature brings us many gifts, including the gift of silence. And silence can be healing -- an opportunity to take in the quiet and listen to the world as it was meant to be while at the same time, releasing all the nagging troubles of the world.
As one way to unplug, go out into Nature and bask in quietude. Reconnect your body, mind and soul and feel whole and alive once again.
