An illustration from Imagine Me with The Three Owls
I find this illustration calming to look at, I hope you do also. Watching a sunset can bring us back to the present moment. When we are back in the present moment, what can happen is that we stop worrying about what is going to happen in the future and what has happened in the past.
When we are not living in the present moment are mind is everywhere else and not where we are physically, this can lead to stress and anxiety. Just by simply taking 5 minutes out in nature to stop and breathe can bring back a sense of ease.
I have included the accompanying text for this illustration from the book, Imagine Me with The Three Owls. This page of the book can be read on its own just as a lovely relaxing activity, to help assist with imagining a special place to be in nature and feel relaxed.
