The other day, when I saw my daughter fighting examination stress, I told her to go out into the backyard and connect with nature. After a while she was back looking rather perplexed. “I don’t see much nature out there — all I see are tall buildings near the house,” she said. I was amazed by her response and took her out with me.
“Can you feel the ground below your feet? It is the earth. And can you see the sky up there and feel the air touching your skin? And it is still light, so the sun is also around.” And what about water she asked. “Water is also here as moisture within you and me,” I replied. Once I had explained my daughter seemed at ease. I too was relaxed because I had somehow planted in her the virtue of being in proximity with nature.
