Let’s all reconnect with nature
I just wish to say that I agree wholeheartedly with Bo Beolens (Bird Watching March 2017). While I believe it is important to have a work/life balance, I feel it is the current trend for people to be always ‘doing’ instead of ‘being’. We seem to have so much to do and so much we can do. In my line of work, I find myself giving people permission to contemplate, watch a bird or notice the sea. People often say to me that they feel they do not have time to do this or there are more ‘worthwhile’ activities they should be doing. We have forgotten the art of simply ‘being’ and how beneficial this is to our lives as a whole. Let’s all reconnect with nature and thus ourselves, let’s become human beings again instead of human doings. Thank you so much for this article. I intend to show it to my friends and colleagues. I also intend to see if I can get some people interested in visiting my local RSPB.
