Learn to respect nature
Everywhere you go in nature, you are being taught to respect nature. You learn to look at it and see it as a friend. You learn to let go of your own preconceived ideas and emotions about nature and the environment. You learn to appreciate the simple beauty of the world around you and to take less for granted. By learning to respect nature, you are also helping to protect it. Nature is a wild and unpredictable place. It’s easy to get carried away and damage or overstep the boundaries of nature. By learning to respect nature, you are also less likely to become involved in activities that might damage the environment.
Go for nature walks
If you’re not much of a walker, go for a walk in nature. Go for a walk in the woods, the fields, or at the beach. Go for either a hike orsome jogging. Go to a zoo or a botanical gardens. Go to the most famous nature spot in your city — the beach. Just go for a walk. You’ll be surprised how much you enjoy nature when you’re out of the city and away from the hustle and bustle of life. When you’re out in nature, you’re free to look, to smell, and to listen. You’re free to think and to feel. You’re free to be yourself in a way that you’re not usually allowed in a city.
Watch nature as a movie in natural settings
If you have the lucky occasion to see a movie in a natural setting, go for it. Natural settings are beautiful, and you’re sure to enjoy yourself even more. When you’re out in nature, you’re probably in a remote location. You might not be able to hear the sounds of nature, but you’re sure to feel them. You might even see some nature-inspired visuals, like trees and plants, as movie screens. Natural settings are also free from distractions, like things you might see in a city. You might not think of cities as being beautiful, but they’re just as beautiful in a natural setting.

Try out different activities with the help of nature.

You might not get to do anything physical, but you’re allowed to take a break from the city and from your cares. When you’re with nature, you feel safe and you trust the environment around you.
Take a break from city life
If you’ve been living in a city your whole life, it’s very easy to feel stuck in a city setting.

You might even get to enjoy the company of animals, like a dog, a cat, a skunk, a squirrel, a meerkat, a spider, or a fly.
