We spend most of our waking hours in the home, office, shopping centres, hawker centres, on the road. We live and breathe in man-made environment. We are caught up with rushing from one place to another, from one appointment to another.
Why not spend some time during the weekend walking in the park, the reservoir, the seaside, or nature reserve?
You connect with nature: the trees, the flowers, the water, and the living creatures living there. Consciously set aside your immediate concerns and just enjoy what are around you at the moment. Some quiet moment soaking in the atmosphere will soothe you. Listen to the sound of nature, the bird’s singing, the insect noise, sound of fish swimming. You will be surprised that we have not noticed all these sounds until we open up to consciously listen out for them.
