Gazing at the Sky Above
Sky gazing is something I used to do a lot as a child. I don’t do it as often anymore, but I definitely feel like I should try to. I think it’s a great way to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
As long as the weather is suitable, you can’t go wrong with taking a break to gaze at the sky, regardless of what time of day it is. You can grab a chair and sit outside, or you can admire the space above as you walk. Either way allows you to get outside and be alongside nature, helping you free your mind of worries and stressful thoughts.
If you go outside during mid-morning or in the afternoon, you get a chance to see the bright blue sky. If there are clouds, then you can watch as they slowly appear to move across the sky. You may even see an airplane flying above every once in a while. For me, just looking at this scenery gives my eyes a sense of relief, especially after staring at a screen for a while. It also makes my mind wander, making me imagine what it’s like to be a bird that flies alongside the clouds. And even though you can’t look directly at the sun, you can feel its warmth, putting your mind and body at ease.
If you choose to sky gaze in the evening, you have the opportunity to see the sunset. It is truly an enjoyable and memorable sight, especially as you see the colors in the sky change as nighttime approaches.
When it’s nighttime, and if it’s not too chilly, you can go outside and take a look at the night sky filled with stars. This is my personal favorite time of day to go sky gazing. I’m not very knowledgeable about astronomy and constellations, but I think there’s a beauty in admiring the night sky. Seeing the bright stars and the moon in its various forms makes me wonder if life really does exist somewhere out in the vast universe we live in.
If you haven’t tried sky gazing or stargazing before, I recommend it. It could truly make for an enjoyable hobby.
