Are you an astronomy geek and an avid traveller? If yes, you must indulge yourself in some stargazing. Although the sky does not look the same anymore due to pollution, you can still find spots that are away from the city rush and offer a beautiful night sky and a majestic view of billions of glittering stars.
Stargazing is no less than a therapy itself. Not only that, it has a great impact on our lives and our mind too. Want to know how? Read through and I bet you won’t be able to resist it.
Connect to Nature
Stargazing is the best way to connect to nature. The majestic view of the night sky will make you feel like a little particle in the universe so gigantic and yet you matter and so does your existence. You will develop a sense of gratitude inside you for all the blessings you have. You will begin to feel connectivity to everything.
Deep Reflective Thought
Different thoughts cross your mind when you are gazing at the stars. You start reminiscing the old times and moments that you spent under the very same sky with people who don’t exist in your life anymore. Not only that, the sky tells us about the history and all the eras that have passed under the same sky. When you start gazing at the stars, you will find yourself in a pool of deep and meaningful thoughts. There is no better way to embrace solitude than stargazing.
Appreciate Everything and Feel Blessed
We are always too busy in our tough schedules that we forget to appreciate our surroundings and the beauty the nature has to offer us. Stargazing gives us that opportunity to stop and stare at the majestic views that we have been missing out on and feel blessed.
Time Stands Still
While looking at the stars, it feels like the time has stopped for a while and the calmness pours in. There is no better activity than stargazing for you and your partner. The world seems calm, the time seems to stand still and if there is a shore nearby, you can hear the rhythmic sound of the waves that add to the beauty of the scene. Therefore, if you are looking for a way to propose to your partner, taking them for stargazing to a beautiful spot far off the city lights can be a wonderful idea.
We are always spending tons of money in order to achieve a great holiday filled with relaxation and fun. Stargazing is not only free of cost, but is immensely relaxing to the mind as well. If you find the right spot with a perfect view for some hiking through the day and stargazing at night, your holiday will be a memorable one!
