Renewal and Resilience: Leveraging Nature for More Balance

Hey there, fellow nature enthusiast! 

Are you living this nature series?

Tell me what your best part has been.

What have you tried?

What are you going to try? I hope you are enjoying nature and its effect on you and your lifestyle. Did you know access to nature can reduce illness and induce longevity?

If you doubt the ability of nature to heal you, you are not alone. I had a hilarious experience last weekend, where one of my friends got the Mind of Makus newsletter. Because she wasn’t having a good day, she was doubtful. Still, she took herself outside anyway to a basic green space and one abracadabra later…. She was full of smiles. Read the experience in this Instagram post.

If you are not getting my weekly newsletter, you can join by filling the details below. I do not spam, as i only send out newsletter once a week.

In this blog post, let’s explore how the energy of nature can fuel our renewal and resilience, guiding us towards a brighter, more resilient mindset.

Embracing Nature:

In this season of renewal, where nature shakes off its wintry cloak and bursts forth with new life, you can take a cue from Mother Nature and let go of negative thoughts, worries, and self-doubt. 

Instead, open your heart to the endless possibilities that springtime brings, allowing yourself to blossom and grow in the warmth of the sun.

Try something new, sign up for new hobbies and community activities, Google activities happening near you, go to garden centres for tea and cakes, or eat outdoors in your garden or balcony. Get outside my dear friend.

Connecting with Nature’s Energy:

There’s something truly magical about immersing yourself in nature’s embrace and feeling its energy course through your veins. Whether it’s the gentle rustle of leaves in the breeze, the soothing sound of flowing water, or the vibrant colours of blooming flowers, nature has a way of rejuvenating our spirits and lifting our moods. 

It has been proven that being in green spaces and blue spaces near water improves your physical and mental health. And these spaces are often free to access. In fact, just take a seat outside today for lunch.

Lace up your hiking boots, put on some slippers, grab your favourite water bottle, and venture outdoors to connect with nature’s energy. Let the natural world’s sights, sounds, and scents inspire you and light up your creativity and strength.

Finding Strength in Nature:

Nature has a remarkable way of soothing our souls and lifting our spirits. Life can feel overwhelming these days, we are exposed to so much information, at lightning speed, and the world demands we respond almost immediately. *Deep sigh*

What will you do differently? 

Will you continue the way you are going?

Is it working? So far?

Why not try this?

Allow yourself to be immersed in the beauty of nature, drawing strength and inspiration from its resilience and vitality. Let the energy of the earth and all that dwells within infuse you with a renewed sense of hope and determination as you face your mental challenges head-on.

Cultivating Resilience Through Nature’s Lessons:

Nature is a master teacher, imparting valuable resilience, adaptability, and perseverance lessons. Just think of the mighty oak tree, weathering storms and standing tall against adversity, or the delicate butterfly, emerging from its cocoon to soar to new heights. 

Similarly, we can draw upon nature’s wisdom to cultivate resilience in the face of mental challenges. Remember that, like the seasons, life is ever-changing, and each setback is an opportunity for growth and transformation. With nature as our guide, we can weather life’s storms with grace and emerge stronger and more resilient than ever before.

My favourite thing to do when I am stressed is to take a shower and go out in my garden. I always find it eases things and makes me feel stronger enough to keep going. 

The moment in which you feel like you are in hell, keep moving because you don’t want to be stuck in hell. Nope!

As we get on with life this weekend, let’s harness the boundless energy of nature to overcome any mental challenges that may come our way. Embrace the season of renewal, connect with nature’s energy, find solace in its sanctuary, and draw upon its timeless wisdom to cultivate resilience in your own life.

Together, let’s embark on this inspiring journey of renewal and resilience, guided by the enduring beauty and strength of the natural world. We all need each other, so be kind to yourself, to the environment, and to your people. 

Wishing you a weekend filled with renewal, resilience, and boundless joy.

Stay authentic, Stay resilient,

Be yourself and keep getting better at it.

Live wholeheartedly,


2 Cor 3:2(MSG)

You yourselves are all the endorsement we need. Your very lives are a letter that anyone can read by just looking at you. Christ himself wrote it—not with ink, but with God’s living Spirit; not chiseled into stone, but carved into human lives—and we publish it.
