On this first day of December, make time to get outside, if only for five minutes. Suspend your worries, put aside your to-do list and your not-enough-time troubles. Simply breathe. Notice how you feel.
- Do this while you spend time in nature:
- Exhale slowly.
- Pause before you inhale.
- Inhale slowly.
- Pause before you exhale.
See if you can lengthen the pauses. This unhitches you from those stress-producing negative thoughts and feelings.

Love this and so important to fight against nature deficit disorder. Thanks, Marianna.
NDD – nature deficit disorder. Hard to understand why there is so much of that going around when it is such an easy fix.
I do all that every morning!
That doesn’t surprise me, Ramana.
So many children growing up in chronic state of NDD – have not heard that term before! Always so good to read your words, M
Agreed, J. We have to do what we can to ensure that future generations have nature to enjoy.
