"Regularly commune with and learn from nature." - 54 precious keys to happiness

(part of the series)

We can learn a lot from nature. But one thing I often think of is how plants follow the light; they grow and reach towards the sun. Without sunlight they wither. In our lives the "light" is love and peace and all things positive that help us reach our truest potential - these things give us meaning which brings happiness. On the contrary, negative feelings - bitterness and jealousy, etc, waste our energy and hinder our health and happiness.

"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. " - Anne Frank
