Xavier D’Souza – Motivation from Nature | MCQNA365

Through being in nature and focusing our thoughts on the world around us, we are able to transform our thoughts into positive energy. It is our duty to connect with nature. Feeling connected, and whole, allows us to return to work with a fresh and motivated mindset.

Motivation means the driving force within individuals that impels them to action. It is considered to be dynamic in nature as it is constantly changing in reaction to life experiences. Needs and goals are constantly changing because of an individual’s physical condition, social circle, environment and other experiences.

Feeling grounded is when we feel so connected to the natural world that we feel as though we are a part of it. It is the feeling of being whole and connected, to both ourselves and the world around us.

A good way to feel grounded is to fully immerse yourself within nature. That could be going for a swim in the ocean, or sitting on a beach with your hands buried in sand. It could be sitting on a park bench feeling the drizzle fall on your face, or a walk in the woods. Wherever you are, the key is to be mindful.
