Nothing makes you feel small like being at the top of a mountain. Looking down at thousands of trees, tiny buildings, and snow capped rocks really puts life into perspective.
Today we ventured to Boulder, a city I’d never been to before. I’ve been in Denver for five days now and have been in awe of the constant sunshine, majestic mountains, and overall chill vibe. There’s definitely a much less chill energy on the east coast- unless you count the New England air.
We drove up Flagstaff Mountain to catch the views, stopping several times along the way. Although it was a bitter 24 degrees, the sun made it feel much warmer- unless there was wind, of course. Even though it’s been warmer in Boston, this week was the perfect time for me to go on a getaway, relax, and recharge my batteries. There’s something about the fresh mountain breeze and sunny days that makes you feel brand new.
It’s important to remember that spending time in nature is a perfect way to engage in self-care. Connecting with the earth helps to ground you, relieves anxiety, and balances your root chakra. Having a solid foundation and a clear outlook is important for starting a new week, project, or job- I never used to realize how therapeutic being outside was, but it’s been one of the most helpful forms of “medicine” in my life this past year.
Whether you’re by a park, beach, mountain, river, or lake, spending time in nature is one of the best ways to recharge your soul and re-energize your spirit. I love meditating outside in the sunshine, going for walks along the water, or just grabbing coffee and strolling through the park.
I hope you’ve been able to recharge this weekend- March is almost here, so make the most of this last week of February! I’ll be enjoying the chill Colorado vibes in the meantime.
