Top Reasons Why You Should Create Something New Outdoors

Top Reasons Why You Should Create Something New Outdoors

Let’s face it. There’s just something about the outdoors that makes one inspired to create something new when surrounded by it.

Be it a simple painting that depicts how magnificent the sun rising over the horizon truly is or an elaborate carving that depicts how iridescent the sea gleaming under the horizon really is, the outdoors will definitely make you unleash your creative potential like no other.

The only question is: Why is that so?

Ladies and gentlemen, here are some of the top reasons why you should create something new outdoors:

painting

It’s because creativity starts with relaxation, one that the outdoors can provide you naturally and without you worrying about the possibility of getting bummed out mentally while doing what you need to do.

The key here is being able to see places in a different perspective. Take for example, painting a sun rising over the horizon on a canvass. When you’re relaxed beforehand, which I’m sure you will be more as you see how magnificent it truly is even from a far distance, your mind will be able to see that magnificence not just in plain sight, but in every angle possible known to man – further allowing you to see not just the sun, but also those birds flying towards it and especially those clouds forming beside it.

Simply put, your mind’s relaxation will ultimately reflect how magnificent what you see in front of you will be – as opposed to how you see places when you think something otherwise about a certain place.

carving

It’s also because creativity ends with rejuvenation, one that the outdoors can provide you naturally and without you worrying about the probability of getting burned out physically upon doing what you want to do.

The key here is being able to experience things in a new way. Take for example, carving a sea gleaming under the horizon on an ice. When you’re rejuvenated afterwards, which I’m also sure you will be more as you experience how iridescent it really is from a near distance, your body will be able to experience that iridescence not just in plain touch, but in every approach known to man – further allowing you to experience not just the sea, but also those trees swaying beside it and even those crabs skittering towards it.

Simply put, your body’s rejuvenation will ultimately reflect how iridescent what you experience in front of you will be – as opposed to how you experience things when you feel something otherwise about a certain thing.

Not every day is a happy day. Everyone feels the blues from time to time. People have different ways of improving their mood. But those who regularly spend time outdoors are more likely to experience a greater sense of wellbeing. So the next time you feel stressed out or just need a quick break from it all consider heading out to the nearest park or any other green space near you. You might be surprised how it can change your mood for the better. Here’s how to tap into the therapeutic effects of spending time with nature.

Listen to the sounds of nature. When was the last time you took the time to listen to the natural sounds around you? Get away from the usual noise of the city by finding a quiet place where you can pick up the subtle sounds of the breeze as it pass through leaves or the buzz of bees and chirping of birds. Most relaxation music use soothing nature sounds, which you can enjoy by spending more time outdoors. You can start using nature to improve your mood by visiting a beach, lake, or river near you. Sit by the water, breathe, and release all your worries, fears, and tensions away.

Make outdoor breaks a part of your routine. Take outdoor breaks. Spend the few precious minutes of breaks from work at any available green space in your workplace. Or go for a short walk outside. Enjoy al fresco lunches or bring your lunch with you at nearby park so you have a leisurely lunch surrounded by nature. Not only will it help clear your mind. I may even spark your creativity.

Do some work outside. A change of scenery can be good for you. Sometimes all you have to do is to bring your laptop outside once in a while, especially when you start feeling overwhelmed by the pressures at work. Find a cozy spot outdoors where you can do your work while enjoying a breath of fresh air and the calming scenes that nature rarely seem to be in short supply of.

Take up an outdoor activity or sport. Nature and exercise are both great at boosting mood. Take up an outdoor activity or sport like biking, gardening, running, walking, or more. These activities should give you plenty of reason to go out and spend time with nature.
