Your busy schedule may rule out doing much outdoors. You're constantly on the go. You do want to spend more time doing outdoor activities, but you feel it's impossible. Well, you have the inner power to make the impossible possible. The same way you dedicate time to other important things in your life, you should devote time solely to the outdoors. Choose the best time in your day to enjoy some relaxing fun outside. And if you don't want to spend the time by yourself, bring the family along.
You're preoccupied with work, school, children and other responsibilities that you tend to forget what it means to enjoy your inner peace. Bringing peace into your life is easy. Some people make it difficult because they choose to overlook it or even live in anger. They complain, criticize and detest everything around them.
