When you live in a big city you surely have stress problems. Pollution, noise, crwods, nervousness, overtaxing work (maybe at home, too), these are the things that can make you say that you are tired, and you want to forget about them, at least for a while. The sollution is very simple: just get in a train and go to a calm place, somewhere in nature. It could be near a small lake, in a forest, on a coast or in the mountains. All you have to do is to relax, to forget about your everyday problem, because usually people have the tendency to enter into automatism, like a machine: wake up in the morning, go to work, drink coffe, go shopping, return home, watch TV, go to bed and then start all over again. Nature could be a mirror for ourselves in which we can see who we become and which are the really important things in our lives. In this way nature can be a place of meditation and at the same time an inexhaustible source of energies. Also nature should be an example of harmony and balance for our lives. Nature is, for me, more than the place where I can be myself, it is also a teacher and a friend close to my heart. I hope that a lot of people who think and feel like me. I also hope that I have pointed enough reasons to convice you to “return to nature”, to respect her and to protect her.
