Nature Is The Medicine We Need

Make the most of what you have mum, come outside, play and have some fun!

‘Make the most of what you have mum’

‘Come outside, play and have some fun’

Those were the words spoken by my child

Who lets her spirit run free and be wild

Recently I hit another bump

Found myself sitting in a slump

Picking up the phone to check Fakebook

Social media embedded in me like a hook

Neglecting myself, especially my health

Losing touch with my inner wealth

I then remember the choice is mine

It is up to me, to make it all fine

I remember I can love myself

Which this time, means taking care of my health

So I reach for the good food

Which instantly improves my mood

I decide to put away my phone

Detach from the social media moans

I go outside and sit in the sun

Laugh with my daughter, play and have fun

Go for a walk and feed the wildlife

This is certainly medicine to relieve strife

We sit on a bench and just chill

This feels better than any pill

My deep gratitude for life returns

Do you know what I’ve learned?

That my child is absolutely right

She helped me to find my positive sight

Nature is a medicine we need

Step out your front door and start to feed

Look up, greet the birds in the sky

Watch them glide and beautifully fly

Take a seat on a bench anywhere

Tune in listen, there are sounds everywhere

Bathe in the suns warm rays

This will help you step out of your haze

Go for a walk on the beach
