Alright, you’ve gotten over the initial phase. You’ve accepted your job loss. You’re not in denial. You’re still in pain. You’re looking for ways to cope with the pain and the stress. You want to heal. You want to find meaning … if possible. What do you do? Where do you start?
I found nature extremely helpful in this process. It is very grounding. It is supportive. It heals. It is life. It validates there is hope.
I found a rugged trail near our home. I would visit it often. It was therapeutic. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I found my walks to be meditative. The walks allowed me to release my stress in a positive way. Also, what a better way to reconnect with the source, with no disturbance.
I invite you to spend time in nature. You don’t need to go far. You can find a nearby park. Truly disconnect from noise. Leave your electronics behind. Walk. Listen. Breathe.
