Nature is Therapeutic

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have chosen is a 3 minute clip of beautiful harp, piano and guitar music along with singing birds and ocean waves...and some beautiful nature scenes.  Enjoy!

The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took last July in a nature park.  I just love the sound and fragrance of running water.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.


Most of you already know that I struggle with depression.  I can't begin to tell you how being in nature helps me!  Taking walks in nature parks and being around birds and animals is something that lifts my spirits.

Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I am still having difficulties with commenting on some blogs, so thank you for bearing with me.  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  5. Yes, nature is indeed therapeutic for me also. That's why I'm an avid hiker. Not only being in nature, but getting out and moving my body helps me mentally as well as physically.

  6. I, too, love the sound of water running over rocks. It's one of the things that draws us to the Smoky Mountains so often. Your photos look so refreshing!

  10. I like how they've included the birds and waves with the harp. The water seems to be high and rushing by you very quickly.

  11. There's something addictive about watching the ocean. Your whole body takes in the experience. It must do wonders for the brain.

  14. I admire you for being disciplined and getting outside to walk. It is probably difficult some days but still you persevere. Plus it gives us some beautiful pics to see after you post them. I love the ocean - - - don't like swimming in it but love, love, love to look at it and hear the waves. It never grows old.

  25. Linda - your posts always bring a ray of sunshine. Nature really does help to chase away those blues. Walking outside just makes me always feel better. Someone once told me that if you walk long enough you walk right out of your worries. I am not sure they are right but it certainly helps. One thing for sure when I visit you here I am always lifted up! Take care and have a beautiful day.
