Nature energizes me.

My energy levels soar when I connect with nature. The earth and the sun remind me that I am part of something bigger than myself.

The variety in nature amazes me. My neighborhood trees look completely different from one season to the next. I constantly discover unfamiliar vegetables that I want to try. I read about new planets being discovered. My curiosity is aroused.

Nature impresses me with its growth. I watch a tiny spider build a vast web. This convinces me that I can tackle ambitious projects if I take the necessary first steps.

I find comfort in signs of renewal. I greet the first blades of grass that push up through the melting snow. It reminds me that my own actions carry a lasting impact even if it is difficult to see their value immediately.

Open spaces expand my vision. I dream on a larger scale.

Beauty enchants my senses. Rainbows and snowflakes contribute to my sense of wonder.

A feeling of gratitude wells up in me. I become more aware of all the gifts that nature shares with me.

My motivation is strengthened when I go out into nature and I am filled with confidence. I marvel at the precise operations of ecosystems and galaxies. I want to give back all that I can. I am eager to protect my environment.

Today, I pay attention to the natural world. Living in harmony with the environment adds vitality to my life.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. When can I find time each day to spend at least 20 minutes outdoors?
2. How can I bring more of nature into my environment at work?
3. Why is protecting the environment important to me?
