Getting Back to Nature: Fantastic for the Mind, Body and Spirit, and the Environment


| 10/10/2014 10:07:00 AM



We are living in a world that is constantly surrounded by technology and screens. The world is becoming a great deal smaller, as it is becoming almost second nature to chat with somebody on the other side of the world, across town (or even a different room of your home) with a quick text, instant message, call, video call or email within arm’s reach! While communications are more accessible and convenient than ever before, some people are reporting increased loneliness because although quantity of communication is there, quality is unfortunately not.

More and more people are looking to reconnect themselves with nature and taking a step back from technology and the digital world to get in touch with mother earth.  There is a holistic appeal to living off the land, cultivating and growing your own food where possible, generating your own energy and making a conscious effort to spend some time away from the computer, phone or television screens.

Many Americans are looking to get back to nature because it's a healthier lifestyle option. It is not only more friendly for the environment, but eating fresh food, spending more time outdoors and being active can do wonders for an individual’s health.

‘Technology free Tuesdays’ are a fantastic way for people to make an additional effort to allocate weekly slow time for yourself and find some time to properly talk and enjoy each other’s company. Sharing a meal and playing a board game, and trying to  make your home a smartphone free zone for the evening and enjoying eachother’s genuine company can be fulfilling.



Vacations that bring the holiday maker closer to nature are also becoming increasingly popular. From camping holidays, hiring RVs or buying are all fantastic ways to get out of the city and truly appreciate the beautiful surroundings nature has to offer. It is the perfect opportunity to leave technology at home and go for walks, observe wildlife and experience a different kind of living.
