And for some time, I let the flow the stream guide my thoughts. It wasn’t long before I had my notebook and pen out from my pack. Sometimes, it’s the soulful moments of simplicity in Nature that sparks my creativity and flow, which usually takes me along a path of discovery, as some of my best literary ideas come to me while I’m exploring the woods.
For me, camping and spending time in Nature is the ultimate cure all. Not only does the experience of being out in it give me peace, it aids my stressed mind and nerves a chance for much needed respite. And I honestly believe that spending time with Mother Nature can cure the strongest anxiety and temper the worst stress level. If I could hike everyday and live my days in the wilderness, I would. I would grab my Foxelli trekking poles and take off for months on end. Because it is where I feel free, and sane, and carefree. And because, deep down, I feel a natural connection to her.
