Nature is what connects us all.
1. Think about something in nature that makes you feel anything, then describe it.
Many elements in nature can provoke all kinds of feelings. Nature can make us feel curious, excited, energized, calm, and even scared! What's something in nature that makes you feel a certain type of way? Does standing next to a waterfall wake you up? Does watching the rain on a window slow your heart rate? Does the thought of swimming in a deep ocean scare you? Does finding mushrooms in the forest take you back to your childhood? Explain the feeling and why you think you experience it.
2. Describe the life of something tiny.
Nature is a massive thing that exists all around us, yet is made up of teeny tiny things. Think of something tiny that exists in nature. Something like an ant, a bee, a fungi spore, a snowflake, or even a bioluminescent phytoplankton. Make up a short story describing its journey and life in the massive world that it is surrounded by. How does this tiny thing contribute to its ecosystem? What obstacles does it face? Why is it important?
3. List it out.
Find a peaceful place outside to sit and make note of everything you see, hear, smell, and feel. Practice tuning into the chirping of the birds, the breeze or sunshine on your skin, and aroma of the plants around you. Simply observe all the nuances that make your environment lively and vibrant. Next time you're out, they may just seem even richer.
