Feeling Stuck? Go Back To Nature

Posted on: July 10, 2012 Category: Self Mastery

I am off on a road trip this week – how exciting! This past few days I’ve been going back to nature, soaking in the beauty, grounding myself and feeling more energised than ever!

Do you feel stressed?
Do you feel tired often?
Do you want to feel inspired and feel the ease of flow?


It is so important to escape to nature every so often. To go to a place that seems untouched from all the man-made structures and industrialisation. To get some clean fresh air, to feel the grass or sand between your toes, and to appreciate the miracles around us.

Get back into nature. Every time I find myself feeling stuck (I say feeling because I don’t think we are really ever stuck :), I take a long walk at the lake or read a book at the beach or on the grass. I watch the sun rise or set; I climb a hill; I go to the beach. It used to seem to be the perfectly logical and normal step for me to take whenever I was ‘feeling stuck’ – but I have come to realise that they were all actions I took to return myself into nature.

After doing this, the effect is instant. I always instantly feel more grounded, and feel like there is more space within me to expand. It’s like feeling recharged and refueled and ready to carry on the journey of life.


Take Action Challenge
Today, take a walk in nature. Take off your shoes and walk on the grass or on the beach. Feel the sand between your toes. Watch the sun rise or set. Climb a mountain. Go camping. Escape to somewhere in the country. Go cycling or kayaking.

Soak in how much beauty there is around us.

I think you’ll find that there are so many miracles happening in nature and around us.

In the comments below – let me know, what do you do when you are feeling stuck? Do you go back into nature often – if so, what do you do?

I’d love to hear from you! And if you enjoyed reading this, please share/like/tweet it!

    I walk each morning as the sun is coming up – it’s such a special time, and the streets are so quiet, it’s beautiful with the world just waking up…if I don’t get to see the sun come up out in the fresh air, I really miss it!

    I love this. I’m going to get outside tonight and just enjoy nature and some me time.


  3. Indeed – I couldn’t agree with you more!

    I spend time in nature every day – starting with a nice walk with the dogs outside in the neighborhood :).

    I’m also so fortunate to have a wall that opens up in my home to the backyard so I can spend my days working on the computer on the picnic table!

    Time with nature is really soul food for me, and I indulge on a daily basis ;).

  4. Love, love, love this post! I make sure that I spend a minimum outside in nature for at least an hour a day. This is what I need to keep me in flow though often I’m out for 2/3 hours. What I’ve found is that after being in nature I get through my work so much quicker, I’m happier and life flows. Specifically I take time to connect energetically with nature, especially trees. My whole work is actually based around the connection I have with trees! And the best thing is that it means I get to be outside even more – all in the name of work :)

      Thank you Tabitha!! Wow, your work sounds so inspiring and amazing. Connecting energetically with nature – WOW! You inspire me. :) x

  5. Nature!! What a brilliant idea! I have a favorite spot I go to when I am having a bad day or just need to get away from things. On the cliff overlooking the ocean. If I can’t go there (right now I live in a different city) then I go take pictures of the mountains, or river or trees. I am loving the summer and that I can stay outside until late and not get cold. Thanks for the reminder!
