Connecting to nature has been proven to promote healing and well-being, going for a walk, taking in a view of the sun rising or setting, sitting in a park beneath the trees or by a pond are simple ways to connect to nature for even the busiest of people. However, our rhythm of living today is often in opposition to nature. We work against the rising and setting of the sun, constantly push our bodies and minds, ignoring the natural bio-clock of the circadian rhythm. Aligning ourselves with a natural rhythm can maximize any little bit of healing that walking in the park, or any other form of physically connecting to nature may offer. One of the easiest ways to follow a natural rhythm is to align with the lunar cycle.
