The beauty of the natural world also functions as a natural improvement in stress and sometimes an unhealthy aspect of our modern lifestyle. It is ironic that our extraordinary technology, giving us new tools to change our lives and our world, can also make us tether for hours a day in front of a computer screen or behind the wheel of the car.
Some people say that we need to develop new skills to live better. It’s very easy now, if we are not careful, to be jammed in all details and demanding our technology, especially a computerized environment where we spend so much time and often get our lives, put on us. More than before, we must make a conscious effort to balance all these technologies with meetings with the natural world. It is our nature to interact with an unscrupulous environment, and we ignore aspects of ourselves to our own danger.
Okay so you live in the city and today, like almost every day, you are pretty sure that it will be the best thing for your salary if you will stay in the office, just like the employer you expect you. You might be able to release when the weekend comes or during the holidays, but realistically that has the ability to go and “interact with nature” as often as they want?
I just want to remind people with this short article that this is an area where our technology can actually get some additional services to us. If our bodies are trapped in our mind cubicle definitely not necessary. After all, the power on the computer you have in front of you and your internet connection can give you at least visual access to places that you might never be able to leave even if you have time. Spend a few minutes staring at the webcam showing the sea coast, or the Swiss Alps. Read the story about trekking through the Himalayan by someone who really visits there, and let your mind consider for a while at least, that you can also witness their majesty one day if you really want to. Many websites have as their focus, so many natural environments we greatly miss our daily lives. Spend a little time with them, let your mind roam, and one day your body might follow. Meanwhile even if you don’t leave the office, it must be healthy to give yourself an open reminder that you are more than a machine operator, that you will eventually become natural with a much wider perspective than canned booths showing you.
