Nature is nature, right? Well, not quite. Though a view may be more or less the same from morning to night, there are many unique differences to enjoy. From the hazy morning mist to the bright afternoon sunshine, the soft colours of a sunset, and a dark sky scattered with stars…. there is always something beautiful to discover.
If you normally go out for an evening walk or a morning hike, this is the perfect opportunity to change things up. Get out of your nature rut and experience the many different sides there are to see. A few ways to make the most of the outdoors (at a variety of times) include:
Become a Budding Photographer. Grab your camera or smart phone and spend some time capturing picturesque views. Take photos during the morning one day, the afternoon the next, evening, night, and so on. The whole idea is to stop and smell the roses (either literally or figuratively). Feel free to share your pictures on social media or with friends after you return home. Your adventures in nature might actually inspire someone else to spend time outdoors. What a neat way to pass on some positive energy!
Do Morning and Evening Rituals. Use nature to your advantage by including it in your spiritual rituals. That might mean a meditation (there is nothing like gaining some inner peace while the sun peeks delicately through the sky) or a cleansing ritual with your crystals (read more about cleansing crystals here). Get in touch with nature – morning, noon, and night!
Take Up Running. Download an app, like Runtastic and start tracking your walks and runs through the neighbourhood. It’ll help you stay active, plus, the stunning views and fresh nature scents will motivate you to keep going. Just make sure if you are running at night to have a buddy with you and wear reflective clothing. Safety first, after all.
There are so many reasons to go outside at different times of day. Don’t limit yourself to just one. There is so much to discover if you simply open up your mind…and your schedule.
