Have you ever wondered when the last time you looked up at the glittering stars was? In today’s world due to light pollution, you’ll have to make some extra efforts to get out of the city and indulge in the simple yet incredible pleasure of looking at the stars. If you want to make the most out of it, go on camping somewhere near a river or on a hill, you won’t be disappointed (except when it’s cloudy!).
- Perspective on life
Looking at the shimmering stars in the vast expanse of the night sky can give you a new perspective on life. Your thoughts might gravitate towards something that needs your attention but you’ve been constantly ignoring or something you’ve never thought about. You will be amazed by the thoughts that come to your mind when you are just gazing up above at the shiny little things.
- Star gaze date
Stargazing can also be a romantic pastime. Just drive far away from the noise of the city with your partner and stand beneath the blanket of night glimmering with stars. If you’re lucky you might get to see a shooting star and who knows maybe your wish comes true!
When you’re watching the stars, the world suddenly seems still. You feel calm and lose the sense of the passage of time. Something we all need in today’s busy lifestyle. If you think about it, it’s quite ironical because we are looking at the stars from a planet that is constantly moving and yet, we get the sense of stillness. Isn’t nature wonderful!
- Connectivity to nature
You’ll realize that even though you’re no more than a tiny speck of dust in this gigantic universe, you still matter. You’ll feel an incredible connectivity to everything. After all aren’t we all made of stardust!
Have you ever thought that while looking at the stars, you’re actually looking at the past? The stars are millions of light years away from us and by the time their light reaches us, they might no longer exist. You have no idea how many such thoughts will knock your door when you’re just gazing at the stars. You might even get an inspiration to write or for something else that you like to do. Solitude serves as a bonus while star gazing and you might even get an inspiration to write or something else that you like to do.
- Appreciate everything
All of us are so overloaded with work and deadlines that we often forget to look around and appreciate everything for what it really is. We even forget to appreciate ourselves. Stargazing encourages you to ponder over such little things in life. Trust me; those shiny things can do a lot!
- Free of cost
You don’t need to spend anything to gaze at the stars. The only things you need is a quiet and unhindered place to look up and of course, your eyes. Yes, it’s true! The best things in life are free.
So, get out there and chase the stars. Let the magic begin.
