“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” – John Muir
LA Green Queen Says: Whether it’s creating a casual picnic spread at home or opting for take-out from a high-end eatery, make an effort to leave the confines of the indoors and take an opportunity to dine in the sunshine. I recommend escaping to one of Los Angeles’ famed national parks. View a detailed list at laparks.org and explore a different one every week.
A Green mind knows why it’s important to connect with the Earth. A Green body becomes healthy through this connection. A Green soul feels good doing it!
Green Mind: The nature conservation movement came to fruition in early 20th century America through the aid of powerfully influential green minds such as Theodore Roosevelt, Gifford Pinchot and John Muir. Thanks to the impact of these environmental warriors, America’s most pristine and picturesque landscapes have been preserved and made accessible for everyone’s green enjoyment.
Green Body: Amidst all of the hustle and bustle of today’s modern age, it’s too easy to forget about America’s conservation pioneers and the earthly treasures their efforts created for society to enjoy. Next time you are looking for a good place to dine, why not try the sunshine within a local park? Our daily requirement of Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin, can only be met by exposure to sunlight. Other benefits include a happier disposition due to the production of endorphins and an overall sense of relaxation.
Green Soul: Being immersed within the natural wonders of the conservation movement will fill your soul with green appreciation.
