Last week I had to undergo a procedure at the local hospital. As my husband and I walked towards the procedure room, I felt my anxiety level rising. As we walked further down the hall we came upon a very large picture window that overlooked an outdoor courtyard. The courtyard had been beautifully designed with lots of trees and winter interest plants. Immediately it had a calming effect and I could feel myself relaxing. Even in the dead of winter, even with all the snow and white sterile hospital walls…nature can work wonders at calming our souls.
The soothing calm of Mother nature.
