“To lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
― John Lubbock
Are you tired of spending overnight vacations at the usual spots like the beach or hotels in the city, and looking to maybe try something new? There’s this sweet place you guys can find up in Sudlon and it’s peaceful and beautiful. The place is called Sandra’s Garden – with a really vast land filled with lots of trees plus the weather is cold there. So, don’t forget to bring some clothes that will keep you warm and toasty.
Sandra’s Garden in Sudlon is surrounded by a wide area of nothing but pure nature. All you’ll see is a lot of green trees and grass – that is just so pleasing to the eyes. The owners have planted some vegetable gardens around the place. As well as a variety of exotic birds you can visit and make friends with, while you’re there. This place is a total escape from the busy city life. You guys can spend some quality time here with your family and friends.
Enjoy the tranquility and be away from work and all the (annoying) people in your life. Hah! Those stressors in your life, forget about them for a while. Nature is the best medicine for all that. A lot of doctors agree and recommend that to their patients as well.
Have you ever heard of ‘Forest Bathing’ – it’s when you drench yourself in all things natural whether it be in a river, lake, the beach or even the woods. Take a long walk and surround yourself with all the good things in life that are free for you and me ~ mama nature. Inhale all the love in and breathe all the love out. 🙂
Not only is this practice good for you physically, but it is also good for your mental and spiritual well-being. You can even go barefoot and maximize this earthing or grounding experience. I do that myself once in a while and surely it produces happy hormones in my body and instantly cheers me up. 🙂
