Connect With Nature

It's amazing how nature can sweep us away into another realm. Just ask philosopher Henry David Thoreau of Walden Pond  -- or new mom Ann Marie Daniel, of Isle of Skye, Scotland: "Sometimes after spending the entire day in the house nursing, it feels like my world is the size of a baby wipe," she says. "It helps me immensely to put my baby, Oscar, in his carrier, step outside, and focus on the natural world. Watching a bird soar, looking at the landscape, or just feeling the fresh air helps to broaden my perspective."
