Do you have time to relax in the park???

The day I went to the park.And unexpectedly I found in a deserted eorner,a cheerytree in full bloom,just like the kind of flowers I used to see in my garden.To my delight,a sense of familiarity well ed up in my mind.At the same tiem I could not keep sighing that life is just like the cheery flowers,beautiful but transient. True to my prediction,in the afternoon I ran to the park.There was nothing left but the tender twigs,The flowers fell thick on the ground as if the spring wind were also sad about it and would not bring itself to blow on them and left them scattered everywhere. Fortunatley outside it is a beautiful world.The snow whitepear flowers were glistening as if they were blooming in you face.The roses and peonies were all in bloom,vying silently with each other for beauty. Do you have time to enjoy this???

These days, concretely speaking a week ago, I begun to walk to work.It is so nice. Every morning I come out of my home one hour earlier than before. In my city, which is an old ancient one, there are more and more park-liking belt built. When I go through the green belt, I take a deep breathe and look around me with birds singing and clouds flowing. Looking far as possible, I found a gate at the end of road. It is so beautiful sightseeing. Sometimes I have my hair combing. How lovely a day beginning!

I have done this before. Especially in the fall. It is nice to watch the colors change. And to have my daughter enjoying time to play outdoors. It is nice listening to the sounds and having all the different smells around.

I did for the first time a few Saturdays ago, my dad was watching football and getting over excited, I need peace so I decided to wrap up, it was particularly cold out but I just wanted some peace, so I went to our local park which is only a five minute walk and I sat on the bench by the pond and watch the ducks and wildlife swimming around, we take this all for granted, it's only on our doorstep and yet we think nothing more of it. It was lovely and peaceful and I reaped the benefits, I should do it more often, only a few people were in the park whilst I was there walking their dogs, with the autumn the coloured leaves and the fresh smell of the air was very rejuvenating. I should do it more often.

Nah, the parks in my area aren't that nice. I'd rather stay home and relax by taking a nap or watching TV. I guess if it's a really really nice park, then I would spend maybe an hour just walking around or feeding the animals there. It's not only a good way to relax and recharge, it's also a very good environment to reflect on life. You're lucky to have a beautiful park near you!

I seldom relax in the park but there are times when my husband and I do go to the park. We usually go there during the late afternoon, after my husband has finished his working. Usually we would walk around the lake, and watch other people do their jogging. Sometimes we would join them jogging and it turned out to be enjoyable. But we seldom do it because most of the time we are tired after working, so we prefer to stay at home. And I have to do the cooking for dinner, if I go to the park I would feel tired and not able to cook proper dinner.

Wowo, jsut hear your words and I can sense the beauty of the nature. The fresh air, beautiful flowers and trees and people are at a leisure, peaceful and relaxing. But I seldom have time for that. I do have two days every weekend while I got so many errunds to run. I am still single and I am considering a simple life. I can't figure out why I have so many things to do at weekends, lol. Maybe it's because me boyfriend occupied all my available weekends since we are in different cities and can only meet at weekends. Now he is on a business trip and you remind me what to do for this weekend. To the park, rather than endless shopping. How wondeful! Thanks for sharing.

No, I think the parks we have here are overpopulated already. Instead of having a good relaxation time, people there are too noisy and the place is polluted that your time might be wasted. Because of this situation, I rather relax at my own balcony at the house. There's more fresh air and you could hear the bird chirping in my hanging plants. ^^,

It is nice that you describe those things as I have not seen what you've been describing. But that is nice that you have places like that in your place. In my place there are also relaxing places to go to but since I am living in an urban area there are a few places in here that certainly look like that one.

I think it's very important for us to get a few minutes off every now and then, and cherish the things around us from the sky to the wind, to the plants in the garden, to the bird flying above us. I feel very happy to be in this world. Small little things like this actually play an important role in our life.

Just by the words in your discussion it made me feel somehow relaxed. It made me imagine everything that you mentioned. It's almost like poetry. Very well worded. . Unfortunately, I do not have time to enjoy these things personally but I hope I could as soon as I get a vacation from work.

Any one can find time for these kind of relaxations I think provided they are good at time management.Getting up half an hour early will enable you to accommodate more things in your life.Likewise going to bed early too.I am a busy man.But I always find time to spend 20 minutes at the parking lot of my daughter's school regulating the traffic and greeting most of my friends with a bright smile. Yes I can find time to relax in the park.

Yes,it is one of the best place to relax.I just go and sit in one of the corners and sit staring at the birds or flowers.It eases my stressed out mind and makes me more calm.

Time isnt the issue for me...its not having a park nearby to go to...BUT I live out in the country at least and do enjoy sitting out on the porch or goin for a walk in our woods etc when the weather allows for it..

I cant tell the last time I have done anything like that but I know I should make time especially when you consider how hard I work. I work form 8:30 am to 5 pm and I have to get up at least by 5:30 am to get to work ontime so I can avoid late penalties.In addition to that I have to endure a two hour ride to and from work in less than ideal road surface .When I get to work I spend hours looking at a computer screen . So if anyone deserves to be able to sit in the park it is me .Just to let time roll on without me having to do anything .Just to feel the cool breeze on my skin while I just refelect on my life (or heck why even do that).I'll just sit in the park and take in some of natures sound for a change - crickets chirping,bird singing leave behind the whirring sound of printer,forget the annoying tapping of keyboards.The aim is to feel the stess you have built up over years without vacation just ooze from you. Thats another thing why I need this seat in the park - I only get three weeks vacation --WHO SAID SLAVERY WAS OVER

If I have time, I really want to go to a park. But, I only have time during a weekend, once in a month at the most. I sometimes bring my nieces and nephew so that they can play there. We bring some food and drinks to share, like a picnic. It's really refreshing to sit and lay on the grass, see other people running while some are just sitting and talking to each other. Just thinking about the park makes me feel relaxed.

that is what i misses most right now , i hardly had time to go to the park just to stroll or relax. I am so busy with all my life's drama that i never even notice that i never went near the park for almost a year now. THanks to you , you reminded me of what i misses in life.
