Back to Nature

In today’s day and age in the civilized world of high
technology, research shows that our hunger for the natural world still endures.
In fact, connecting with nature might be the best medicine for people of all
ages by improving our health, happiness and well-being. Since the beginning of our
existence we have been interacting with nature and it is easily forgotten that
we are actually apart of nature. Throughout this essay I hope to enrich your
knowledge on concept “back to nature” by answering questions such as, why do
people like to get away to the wilderness? What do they hope to recapture in
themselves in the natural world? What do we lose and gain by living civilized
lives.

 

According to Merriam Webster Dictionary the wilderness
is “an area essentially undisturbed by human activity together
with its naturally developed life community.” I believe people enjoy leaving their
civilized lives because you disconnect from the world. A world full of lies,
stress, and confusion. Going to back to nature helps an individual figure out
who they are and what’s important in their life. In nature we are left with the
beauty of God’s creation, no distractions.

            Going
back to nature humans hope to recapture who they are. They are in search of
finding peace and something to fill there emptiness. I believe people go back
to nature when they need to retreat from the world. Why? Some might need time
to think about a decision that may impact their life, others may be sad because
of a tragedy like the death of a loved one, and some                                             
go just to let go some steam. Research shows that spending time in
nature improves mental health, concentration, restores mental energy, and most importantly
makes you happier. After spending a few days in nature and away from civilization,
people admit to feeling more at peace with themselves and hope to return in the
future.

            Living
civilized lives over all can be a decent way of living, if you find a balance
in the way you live. People can tend to get caught up in work, the internet, friends,
enemies, family, bills, and money. Living a civilized life in the future can
make society lazy and more dependent on technology. Making the concept of going
back to nature would slowly die away and the true meaning of hard work will
fade away.

Even though there are negative effects of living a
civilized life there are also positive effects as well. Technology has made an enormous
impacted on humans’ daily life. From being able to making a simple google
search to shopping online. Modern day technology makes communicating easy, can
assist people with disabilities, and is accurate.

In conclusion, I believe there are many good factors
about living a civilized life. Although we cannot forget the all the benefits going
back to nature can offer. Over it all I think it is not about the type of environment
or atmosphere you live in. I think it is about the type of attitude you have
and always making the most out of what you have. Charles Swindle once said “Life
is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.
