Life can be hectic and we all could benefit from taking a few steps back from the frantic pace of the daily grind just to enjoy the finer things nature has to offer. And really, there's no better time to do it than on National Relaxation Day.
Reducing stress levels can not only make you feel better in the short term, but studies show it may improve your long-term health as well.
Luckily for you, we often come across moments of zen while out and about in the preserves and on the trails. Whether it's an incredible scene underwater at Lake Chaminwood, a gaggle of goslings at Lake Renwick Preserve, or a parade of frogs at Centennial Trail, there are always some pleasant surprises courtesy of Mother Nature.
So today, sit back, relax, and take a few minutes to enjoy our top five Moment of Zen videos.
