I will spare my readers the pain of another bad joke with play on words that I did yesterday. I am not sure if I could “bear” the thought of another bad pun. But zoos are fantastic places to be for self care.
Getting some sun, along with some vitamin D, is enjoyable. Planning a day to take a trip to visit some place for fun is not an everyday occurrence, but with can be done with relatively simple ease. And while not everyone has a Disney World or Times Square nearby, we do have zoos in most metropolitan areas.
Theses are no more than a day tip for most of us.
Getting back into nature and seeing wildlife can be awe inspiring. Seeing up close creatures that you normally only see on TV or the small screen of your phone brings them to live in so many ways. TV cannot capture how truly intense a lion’s roar or how adorably cute otters are in person.
Getting out into the fresh air also gives life back to you.
While I know this is not all people, I personally find knowledge fascinating and the study of animals is not an area at which I excel. My daughters can name more animals than I can count at this point and my youngest is caught up in them, she has corrected me a few times on my misinformation. Taking them to the zoo was the natural progression in this post Steve Irwin sadden world.
Seeing awe on their faces was a fantastic thing. I was really enjoying taking them along and going to the different padlocks. Having them get next to the glass with a tiger was enjoyable (for me, they were slightly worried about how thick that glass was). Being able to feed the giraffes was also enjoyable, if somewhat slimy experience.
It was a wonderful break from life.
Breaking up the monotony of the work week/month/year can be key to enjoy life more. You find things or ways to inspire you to do more than just sit at home and watch TV. When you find yourself in this busy world looking a bit lost, take a break. Find a break.
Stop a human doing.
Be a human being.
