Nature

When we divert & divest from nature, we suffer the consequences, and it’s making our society sicker than ever before. When you choose SMART anything, such as a Smart Phone, it’s actually the opposite of smart because it’s a diversion from natural. The Natural way is the only smart way. Nature is the answer to all of our problems! We need to experience a paradigm shift in how we live in the world because we currently live in ways that our toxic to ourselves, our environments, and all the species that also share the same environment with us. Nature deficiency rises in the winter as we begin spending more time indoors, especially in classrooms or hours on end zoom schooling. Because of reduced nature time in the winter, it’s extra important to make the most of any time spent outside!
