8 Lessons To Learn From Nature

8 Lessons To Learn From Nature

As we become more and more detached from nature, we start to realize how much we depend on it. Nature is our primal home, our roots, and our remedy.

In search of valuable lessons in life, we ask for wisdom, experience, knowledge, and intuition. And who’s been around in this world longer than mother nature?

1. Nature Is Flexible and Resilient

Flexibility and adaptability are two things all life has in common––plants and animals alike. Water lilies are aquatic plants that mostly feed on water nutrients, but they get the necessary amount of sunlight by stretching out their leaves to the surface of the water. Saguaro cactuses can stand to go for months without a drop of water in the desert.

Flexibility and fluidity are what makes us strong. The ability to adapt quickly and take what’s best for us is an important ability.

2. Nature Knows What’s Good for Her

In the world of nature, everything revolves around self-preservation and reproduction. Plants need sunlight, soil, and water to survive, while animals strive to feed themselves and their young.

These processes help preserve the ideal balance in their habitats. Thanks to its cycles, nature succeeds at balancing its constructive and destructive tendencies.

By listening to our intuition, developing a growth mindset, and doing the inner work, we will be able to understand our intentions, values, and purpose better, recognize and respond to our emotions adequately, and maintain a balanced life

3. Nature Is Ever-Changing

As the daily, monthly, and yearly cycles change, everything in nature changes, too.

We, on the other hand, cling to things. We want to eat fresh tomatoes and lettuce in wintertime. We want to stay young forever. The fact that we’ve evolved to this level of self-awareness is both a blessing and a curse.

4. Nature Is Never in a Rush

Nature never hurries, and yet, everything is accomplished sooner or later.

On the other hand, human beings are alway in a hurry. We overload ourselves with work that we can’t fit into 24 hours and then we get stressed out.

Stop for a moment. Breathe. Disconnect in order to reconnect with yourself. Set your priorities and change your life’s tempo.

5. In Nature, Everything Has a Purpose

Humans tend to value nature and things in general by the level to which they help their own survival.

If we observe nature more closely, we’d come to realize that everything in it has a purpose. Every single movement is geared towards preserving the homeostasis within the system.

Humans sometimes spend their entire lives trying to find their purpose in life.

Because our purpose hides in things that are closer or inherent to our nature: connection to other beings and nature, creating and executing ideas, helping others find their happiness, and genuinely enjoying life.

6. What Goes Around, Comes Around

In nature, everything circles back to where it came from. All the actions have their natural consequences. If you know how the system works, it’s not too difficult to figure out what the right thing to do is.

This is something we often forget in life.

Irresponsible consumption, lack of care for our personal environment, and lack of sustainability consciousness and sustainability practices in many industries have led to the environmental changes we are facing today.

7. An Ocean Is a Sum of Water Particles

We often feel alone in this world. This can make us anxious, lost, and disconnected from our purpose in life.

In nature, every individual thing is a part of a larger system. An ocean is a sum of the many water drops, and each drop is equally important in making an ocean what it is. Humans are no different.

8. Nature Is Collaborative

More often than not, surviving in nature means collaborating with other members of the same species or even with other species. It’s not survival of the fittest––it’s survival of the most adaptable.

Humans sometimes forget about the importance of working in groups. Our current society teaches us mostly about the values of individual success.

In this “race”, we sometimes forget how gratifying and rewarding it is to collaborate and work together as a team. Having mind-alike companions we trust makes every experience so much richer.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
