The beauty of nature

Few things gives me so much strength as being outside in the nature. I truly have developed a need for it and it's just like exercise: I get un-balanced, low and tired when I don't have it regularly. In Stockholm, I always appreciated our cosy little summerhouse for that reason, the closeness to the ocean and the open fields gave me the right feelings back when needed. I'm the "thinker" person type and easily overanalyse things, but in the bath or outside everything seems to find their answers in the absolute best possible way.
One might have thought that the nature isn't that much different from Scandinavia in these more mid-european loctions, but everyday I see something new and beautiful that is not what I'm used to in Sweden. Like these reddish Pine trees for instance! I mean, how pretty are they? I've never seen anything like it and it curiously reminded me about my trip to Australia many years back? I'll show you more photos later from today's nature stroll.

What do you do to get your strength back and that feeling of balance?

  3. I would say going for a long power walk in the bright early morning. That cleanses my mind totally.

  4. Tack Stina för en jättefin blogg med vackra bilder och tänkvärda texter. Bor i Zürich sedan tio år tillbaka och känner igen mig i dina reflektioner. Du delar med dig utan att bli alltför privat. Ha en bra start av veckan!

  6. Naturen! Den närvaro och det lugn man får av att vistas i total tystnad i naturen är ett måste för mig! Skapar ro och ger energi på samma gång. När man riktigt hör tystnaden (!), då känns det nästan lite magiskt:) Är du ofta och besöker naturen? Tränar du t ex i vackra naturområden? Går ni med vänner på vandringar tillsammans? Vänligen, Åsa

  7. Totally agree! When I have lots on my mind or feel stressed I go for a long walk, and then everything seems much easier and more clear when I get back home and I don´t feel frustrated anymore. Beautiful picture as well.

  9. Du verkar tycka om musik och jag har fattat tyckte för många av sångerna du har lagt upp här, och tänkte nu tipsa om ett fint klipp om du inte redan hört detta. Varenda hårstrå på min kropp reste sig. Hoppas du uppskattar den :)

  10. Tack för en fantastisk blogg så ger så mycket inspiration, glädje, energi, väcker tankar och ger livsvisdom på min vandring genom livet. Du är en sann förebild på alla plan, som kvinna, mamma, stilförebild, ja listan kan göras lång... Tack!
    For those of you who comment about Stina being superficial and obsessed with money just beacuse she writes about the best restaurants etc... Read another blogg if you find it so offending, for me wanting the best of something is rather a desire for good quality.
