Escape Into Reality

S Sister over Lava Lake

The modern world is full of tasks, distraction and noise, which clutters the mind. This clutter leaves no time or mental space for clarity, deep thought or peaceful thought. The common approach to this is to find an escape FROM reality. Escapes like television, intoxicants, internet and dreaming can remove the noise and chaos of the world around us, but it does not cure the issue. Some of these escapes only give temporary relief, as we enter into a false world of fantasy.

Instead of using false worlds or escapes to relieve the stress and noise of daily life, escape INTO reality by going outdoors and into nature. The same stress relieving properties will happen, yet now, you’re entering the natural world that we operate and live in. The benefits of this include a mental and physical rejuvenation, a greater understanding and appreciation of the world around us and an inspiration to thrive. Even Business Insider highlighted the benefits of outdoor exploration, and the benefit to business and leadership.

When the stresses of daily life are such that you need an escape, make it a priority to escape INTO reality, and into nature. You will find peacefulness and clarity while enjoying the outdoors, which will also have added benefits for your life and work. We all need an escape, make it a healthy one. Escape INTO reality, escape into the outdoors.

Achievement (On the Lighter Side)

It is common to set goals, dream and desire past times, but what separates dreams from success is those who do it. Follow your passion and purposefully make progress: step by step, brick by brick, day by day, skill by skill, place by place, person by person. Take the time to make progress toward these goals and their achievement becomes possible. There is one guarantee: If you aren’t working to achieve your goals, they are only dreams. In the words of the famous philosopher, Calvin:

Now, get your knees dirty and make progress toward your dreams!
