I started this blog with a mission in mind, exploring my issues of anxiety and depression and the effect that facing my fears and taking adventures would have on them. I’ve found that spending time in the outdoors away from the distraction of work and technology, i have time to stop thinking and focus on the moment.
These past two weeks have been especially difficult for me in terms of stress and anxiety. I have had bad anxiety attacks twice the last couple of weeks, and had difficulty sleeping almost every night. I decided this weekend that going camping, even if it is at a campground and not out in the woods, would be beneficial for me.
The moment I got out of real life and into the campground and sat in front of a fire, it was like all of my anxiety and worries just disappeared. So next time you feel overwhelmed with life and cant handle life, sit in front of a fire and try to let the calmness of nature take your worries away.
