A Nature Meditation to Relieve Discouragement

What’s on your mind? I hope life is all you want it to be, and you’re full of hope for the future. Awesome! Sometimes, though, we hit bumps and obstacles.

I mean making time every day for what your body needs–rest, movement, close connections with other people, hydration, nourishing food, time in nature.
