Connecting with Nature: Cloud Watching

Observation, appreciation, connection…cloud watching can be an easy way to connect with nature.

If you have children, you’ve probably done this more recently, but most of us don’t often take time to watch the clouds.

Try to recall a time from your childhood where you spotted a creature in the clouds…and it seemed like you could spend all day finding more!

Often, we settle into a routine where we’re focused on what we’re doing, what needs to be done, what didn’t get done, and what could get done, that we fail to stop and smell the roses

Much like how hypnosis, meditation or breathing exercises can reduce stress and improve focus simply by setting your attention to something mundane or static—watching the sky, and looking at the clouds that are there every day can alter and improve your mental state. It certainly brings more awareness and appreciation for the beauty of nature, which in turn typically means connection.

Elephants, whales, dogs or giraffes—what will you find? The next time you find a moment on a nice day with puffy clouds floating by, channel your inner child and see what you might find in the sky

I spotted, and took this photo of a happy prancing elephant, and I am pretty sure I got way more excited about it than my toddler!
