How to Find Peace and Quiet in the City Around You

Those who appreciate nature are generally happier; calmer people. Today, many people live in noisy, polluted, overcrowded cities where concrete predominates over greenery. But you don’t have to live in the country to benefit from nature. Take a walk through the park or simply sit in the garden to relax and truly appreciate your surroundings.

The Great Outdoors


Ultimately, a relaxed state of being depends on you spending plenty of time outdoors. Light is recognized as essential for regulating the body’s internal clock, which controls hormone production and sleep. Spend holidays in the mountains or at the seaside to get maximum benefit from light and fresh air.

Park Life


A walk in the park will help you to reconnect with the natural world. Visit the same park during each of the seasons so that you can appreciate nature’s life cycle. Take time to notice the colors of the trees and flowers and the different smells. Breathe in deeply and inhale large amounts of fresh air.

Gardening is a wonderfully relaxing activity because it releases physical tension, thus reducing the amount of circulating stress hormones in the body, while the act of cultivation in itself is soothing for the soul. Novice gardeners can nurture hardy, low-maintenance plants (see gardening books for inspiration and practical advice). If you don’t have a garden, plant a window box instead. Improve the oxygen levels in your home by keeping some pot plants.

Air conditioning and modern central heating systems have removed much of the impact of the changing seasons. When you live in harmony with nature’s cycle, you will appreciate life much more. Spring, traditionally the season of hope and renewal is the time for starting afresh, clearing your life of clutter and setting change in motion. Summer, associated with happiness and light, brings a sense of freedom and carelessness. Fall, the season of fruition and abundance is the time for reflecting upon what you have achieved and counting the year’s blessings. Winter is a time of rest, retreat and reflection on what has passed.


Never Judge a Day by the Weather


All too often we let the weather determine our mood: on a sunny day, a good mood; on a rainy day, gloom and introspection. Think positively about the different aspects of weather instead: the cool, crispness of snow, the rain that nurtures crops or the fact that thunderstorms do literally clear the air.


A sense of time

Your body adheres to a natural sense of time without you even being aware of it. Ask yourself how often you really need to know what time is. When you come home from work and at weekends take breaks from looking at your phone to see the time to remove yourself from time pressures.
