Here begins your day of healing with Nature.
The task of the day:
Sit in a place that is amidst the nature. Close to forest, or a river, or a garden where you can have a lot of natural resources to be mindful. Take a seat with your feet on the ground Feel the air, the natural vibes, and everything you can see around you. Take a deep breath in. Notice your body as you inhale. Feel the connection between you and the nature. Try to relate to the environment and be aware of your surroundings. Appreciate the nature and beauty you can see everywhere around you. Now, take a long breath out. Notice your body as you exhale. Follow your breath in and out. Be aware as you breathe in and aware as you breathe out.

With this sound of chirping of birds, my mind heals.With this glittering sound of the flowing river, my soul heals.With this gentle breeze and the serene morning vibes, my body heals.
