This activity promotes appreciating the scenery and plants surrounding the environment. Then comes the meditation part which comprise of activities like breathing exercises, stretching, listening to nature sounds, and quiet time for a calm and more focused mind and body. After the warm-up and calming exercises, a brief inspirational talk about gratefulness was delivered. Reflecting on God’s Word was also part of this activity. A Bible verse was presented and pondered on to give encouragement to everyone.
