Enrich Your Life By Reconnecting With Nature!

This post is provided by Luca Yates.

With the advancement of technology in recent years and the increase of mass production in food, many of us feel a need to reconnect with nature.

If this sounds like you then you are not alone. Getting back to nature can be an incredibly rewarding experience. You do not need to give up your smartphone and go to live in the woods to get reconnected with nature.

Here are some of the best ways you can reconnect with the outside world.

Go Exploring

This one is vital if you really want to reconnect with nature. Get off the beaten track and go and explore the world around you. Leave your smartphone at home if you feel that technology is encroaching too much in your life and simply enjoy being out in nature.

It is worth making sure that you know your route inside and out before setting off if you do choose to leave your tech behind. Always take a map even if you do take your phone in case of poor signal. The last thing you want is to get lost with no way to call for help!

Exploring your local area can be a great way to start, as many people are unaware of the beauty that lies right on their doorsteps.

You could try foraging for wild garlic, berries, and flowers- though you should always be sure that you are not trespassing when you do this.

Eat Fresh

One great way to get back to nature is to be more mindful of the food that you are consuming. This can have great health benefits as well as giving you peace of mind about what you are eating.

Where possible only eat meat that you bought from the farm which raised and slaughtered the animals. Doing the same for fruit and vegetables is important so that you can have a real understanding of what you are consuming. Knowing where your food has come from will help you be confident that it is of the best quality and as natural as possible.

You can even get your four-legged friends involved if you want to ensure that the whole family benefits from a switch to natural foods. Try this raw dog food feeding guide from Bella and Duke for some great inspiration on how a natural diet can truly change your dog’s life.

Cultivate Your Garden

This is a great way to connect with nature without having to go too far! Creating a vegetable patch in your garden can be a really rewarding way to reconnect with the outside world- and to help in your goal to eat fresh.

Gardening in general is a great way to improve your mood and health, and has been proved to have fantastic mental health benefits. This can be the perfect antidote to any feeling that technology has taken too big a part of your life.

There are plenty of guides available online to help you with your first steps. The sense of accomplishment that you will feel when serving up your first plate of veg grown in your own vegetable patch will make the hard work well worthwhile.
