A while ago, I went to a writing and meditation workshop. And it was interesting because the instructor sat us down in front of a beautiful lake to do some meditation and then after finishing she asked us to go to the woods and hug at three.
I was like...what.
So yeah, I've ventured on my own and walked to a secluded part of the woods where I was completely alone. Then I followed the instructions and hugged a tree.
And you know what, it felt fantastic. It was so peaceful, and the tree did not judge me or anything. I could feel a calmness and peace inside of me.
You know, one of the best ways to face anxiety is to go to nature and truly listen to your surroundings. I promise you will be able to find peace.
So when you feel your anxiety taking over you, step outside and go to nature. Also, I strongly recommend you hug a tree. It will be embarrassing at first, but it's so worth it.
