"Nature is a mutable cloud which is always and never the same." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our 2021 focus on "Resilience" continues with cloud watching, a quick habit you can implement today! Cloud watching comes with it's list of benefits, including:
connect with the nature,
sparks imagination, and
connect you with others by discussing what you see or saw in the clouds.
Resilience can be enhanced by "...strong spiritual health include having clear values, a sense of self-confidence, and a feeling of inner peace. To improve your spiritual health, it can help to create a quiet space for solitude and contemplation or a place of curiosity and playfulness. Maintaining a playful, curious attitude can help you find experiences that offer hope, purpose, and meaning." ~ GoodTherapy.org
Cloud watching offers an opportunity to be in a quiet space for contemplation with curiosity and playfulness. It's the activity of looking up in the sky, imagining what you see in the clouds, and watching your created image evolve as the clouds move across the sky.
Here are several pictures of clouds to encourage you to cloud watch right now! Take a break, I would love to hear what you see as your watch these clouds OR go outside to check out the clouds today!
