Remove the distractions with a little backcountry.
There’s something profound about the feeling I get when I go backcountry camping. Everything I need is carefully selected (most of the time) to be exactly what I need for the trip. Shelter, food, maybe some camera and cooking equipment. Everything you need to survive for a few days and nothing more. Every ounce of equipment that goes unused is something extra that you have to carry. It makes you really appreciate how little we really need.
There’s an amazing effect created when you have so little distraction. There is nothing but the world in front of you and I can think of few other situations that allow you to more fully appreciate the beauty of our universe and the one life that we have here.
