There’s a sincere peace that is available at this time of the year, unlike any other, and in that peace we’ve found respite from the modern hustle and bustle, and have found that our anxieties and stresses melt away out there. So if you’re feeling overwhelmed or out of place, lonely, lost, or simply like you’re spinning your wheels in life, why not get out of your normal everyday routine and explore the wilder areas around you. Sure, it’ll be cold, but even if you only visit for a little while, that time spent in Nature will soothe you, and will stick with you for a good while. But it’s important to approach this time with the best intentions…
Then simply head out to a wild area that will be absent of people, and simply wander, but do keep your head about you so you don’t become lost. Wander and simply breath deep the fresh air and take in long searching looks, over everything around you. Meditate and breathe, and study every detail, and listen to every faint gust of wind, and touch the rugged bark of the trees, because this sensory information is important to really feeling the place you’re in, and with a break from technology, you can regain your stamina, and your peace of mind.
Today, I wanted to feature Oboz Footwear’s Women’s Bridger 9” Insulated Waterproof Boots, because they helped make this feature possible. They provided a pair of their boots for me to test and explore with, to both bring you this testimony to personal healing in Nature during the notoriously stressful holidays, as well as to offer you my thoughts on the quality of their footwear. Because when you venture out into undeveloped natural areas like a forest, it’s easy to run across terrain that may cause you to trip and strain something, or slip and fall into a hole or off a rock, but with Oboz I am confident in my ability to explore safely.
