Nature focused wellness getaways
John Muir very beautifully says, “Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”
Spending time in nature has scientifically proven to be one of the essential elements of healing, spiritual growth, and wellness. Scientists say that walking along the beach, bathing in natural springs, strolling in the forest, connecting to trees helps increase a sense of wellbeing and connection.

As Kate McGahan says, “The dealing with grief cannot be bypassed. It is a road you must walk, a race you must finish, and no one else can do it for you. If you try to sneak through it without it seeing you, it will seep into your life when you least expect it. Grief will not let you go until you satisfy what it came to teach you.”
