What is it about open spaces that draw you to them? There is something about them! If you have seen the pictures I pick for my posts, most of them are open spaces in nature. Open spaces gives you the ability to look beyond barriers, it gives you clarity. When you need some space or peace of mind, find an open space on a hilltop, beach or a rooftop (legally of-course!) or just some space where you can see beyond.

Even in my house, I purposely have less furniture so I have more free space. More free space also equates to less furniture and things you have to clean. Also equates to more time you have to do things you enjoy like writing, reading and to foster your creativity.
Have you ever wondered how your mind feels so free when you are hiking or taking a stroll through nature. There isn’t a lot of noise or people around you that could be distracting, you can just take deep breaths, be aware and feel. Sounds freeing doesn’t it? Try it!
Next time you are stressed out or need a break from work or any life crisis you may be having. Give yourself some time and treat yourself to some open spaces in nature. If you can’t go out, find it in the pleasure of clearing out a room that has been cluttered will also give you a serene sense of calmness. Get rid of all the clutter in that room and your mind will instantly feel at peace!
What are some of your favorite open spaces that help you clear your mind? What do you do to keep an open mind?
Today’s message – Just breathe, find some open spaces and keep an open mind!
