YouTube Thursdays - To Celebrate Spring, To Celebrate Nature

YouTube Thursdays - Celebrate Spring - Celebrate Nature 





The restorative impact of Nature is profound. Now, more than ever, it's important for us to connect with the timeless power of the earth. You don't have to escape to the wilderness either. Watching a squirrel scampering up a tree or hummingbirds at a feeder, has a calming effect on our brain, even through a window. 

Better yet, try to spend some time outdoors each day surrounded by nature. It's a potent stress antidote and costs nothing. It's likely to make you feel calmer, cope better with stress, and lift your spirits - especially now, when the current health crisis takes center stage. 


It's the first day of Spring, what a perfect time to celebrate the earth's renewal. Perennials are popping their heads up from dirt, dainty blossoms decorate the trees, and birds are singing their sweet tunes.  Let's take a break and celebrate spring. Let's take a break and celebrate nature. 




Take the opportunity to capture the magic going on around you. Short videos featuring the sights and sounds of the season are great ways to connect via social media and emails. Plus, imagine the collective goodwill if we all spread happy sights and sounds amid the constant barrage of grim news. 


FaceBook Fridays


We also encourage you to join or participate in Anita Clark 's  FaceBook Fridays. She helps promote our Facebook pages and encourages mutual support. Plus, Anita shares savvy Facebook marketing tips each week. 


Happy Thursday

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

Love the short video, you have some amazing shots in there. Yes, it is easy for everyone to get caught up and miss the wonders of nature flowering around them. Also now I have some time to put together a video from my camino.

I feel that nature is getting a nice break from all of the pollutions that are normally in the air.

Hello Debb and Bernie - "restorative impact".  I don't recall that exact phrasing but it certainly makes a lot of sense.  I like it.  A lot.

My escape to nature occurs multiple times daily, Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD ... my wife and I have become quite the bird watchers.  Our yard is filled with feeders, bird baths, and enticements for bird to come and share in.  It IS relaxing ... and free entertainment too!  Timely post!

Debb, our latest snowstorm was heavy and wet, and most is now melted, so need to get out and do a spring video.
