When life is busy, particularly as the end of the school year approaches, highly sensitive people often feel overwhelmed. Self care is even more important at these times. Helping our children empty their buckets is vital. Getting out for a walk in nature is an amazingly effective remedy for busy days.
This is exactly what the five of us did last week one day after school. We headed to the woods and just walked, explored and relaxed. Each of us shook off the demands of the day and went home with an empty bucket. Oh and a collection of rather large sticks…..
The boys ran.
We stopped by the waterside and were amazed by hundreds and hundreds of tiny tadpoles swimming relentlessly around, in different states of development. Some were still incredibly small but some teensy frogs were already hopping around on land. The water’s edge was black with the volume of tadpoles.
We admired the beauty of a passing butterfly who stopped to take a moment to rest on the ground.
We walked and took in the blueness of the sky and the yellowness of the fields.
We listened to the rustling of the wheat in the field.
Get out this weekend into all that nature has to offer. Let me know where you went in the comments……
