Find Inner Peace And Happiness With Photography

| 21 Comments

I love taking photos so much that it drives my friends crazy whenever we go out! But it gives me inner peace and happiness…something that we all need. People ask me why do I take so many pictures.

I just love capturing the beauty of a moment and frame it forever.

I love taking pictures of everything but mostly nature. But it’s not just a photo. Photography is an awesome activity that, not only helps you find peace and tranquility but also makes you live a better, healthier and meaningful life.

Here’s how πŸ™‚

Photography Is An Awesome Way To Spend Your Free Time

Just grab a camera or your phone and start taking pictures. You don’t have to be a pro to enjoy the benefits of photography. Just do it for fun. And who knows… you might start loving it so much that you’ll take it as a full-time job.

Don’t be shy and don’t worry about people looking at your awkward photographer pose while taking pictures of a flower. Who knows what masterpiece you can create? Just explore. You never know where it might take you.

See The Hidden Beauty In Everything Around You

There are so many wonderful things happening all around you. You just have to open your eyes and notice. Photography can help you see things you never knew they exist. You’ll begin to see the beauty around you and find joy in small simple things. Like morning dew on a tiny little flower or the sunlight over golden fields.

Don’t worry about the perfect picture. With time you’ll get better. Don’t stress about it…just enjoy it and have fun. Try to find something beautiful in everything you see. You’ll soon see the world differently.

Something New, Something Different And Something About You

Each photo you take it’s unique. Have fun, explore and enjoy every moment. Photography will open a new world for you.

You’ll love it and you’ll learn to appreciate the small, simple things in life you usually ignore. It will teach you to be patient and challenge you to see things from a different perspective and even discover new things about yourself.

Small Details And The Simple Things That Make You Happy

Notice the small details on a tiny flower, a peaceful sunrise over a lake, the morning dew in the garden or the sunlight sparkling in the peaceful ocean waves.

I love taking pictures of lakes, rivers, and the calming sea waves. Just sitting there it makes me feel so happy. Taking pictures of a sunset over a lake and admiring all the beauty brings me lots of tranquility and peace.

Escaping The Everyday Stress

You’re always in a rush, busy. You work all the time, stressed out, rushing in everything in life with bills to pay and lots of deadlines, searching for a way to get away from all that noise, stress and pressure.

Or maybe you’re just lying around doing nothing much. Getting bored and thinking of a way you could bring more happiness into your life and make it more interesting.

Take a break. Take your camera or phone and go outside. Disconnect from everything that causes you discomfort and connect with nature. Give yourself some moments of joy.

You’ll come back happier, healthier with more energy and a fresh perspective on life. Photography helps you overcome depression, helps you with anxiety and calms your nerves.

Live In The Present Moment

Not only that photography will calm your mind but will also help you focus on living in the present. You’re there! Living that wonderful moment that you’re photographing and enjoying the experience.

Perfect way to relieve stress, anxiety and bring more joy into your life. You’ll stop worrying, clear your mind and find inner peace and tranquility.

Nature photography can be a great way for you to spend time in nature and let it work its magic on your mind, body and soul.

You have mountains, trees, all that fresh green grass, gorgeous flowers of all kinds and shapes, the wonderful sound of a waterfall or of a sea wave nice and peaceful or wild and fresh! You have sunsets over the oceans, green fields, favorite animals, parks…whatever makes you happy.Β  Just give it a try.

What have you got to lose? There are really no side effects! Just an awesome time enjoying the beauty of nature. Spending time in nature while taking pictures can do wonders for your wellbeing. Nature heals!

Boost Your Social Life

Photography can be a great way for you to make new friends and boost your social life. Join photography groups, participate at different events. You can even win awards. Different people see things differently. Tell a story with your photographs. Make a collage and frame it.

If you got this far reading this article I guess you’re somehow passionate about photography or even if you’re all new to it just give it a try. You can do this alone or with some friends or family.Β  Take your dog for a photo-shoot!

  8. I agree…photography is ‘healthy’ at many different levels!

  9. Haha, I am like you. I like to take photos wherever I go and my friends will stop and stare not at the things I’m taking photos of, but stare at me πŸ˜€ If we ever went out together, I am sure we would be fine together πŸ˜‰

    Agree with you photography helps us see the small details – the small details that make life colourful. Ever since taking photography more seriously about two years ago, I find my time spending more time in places that I go to. So many ways to take photos of something, so many things to see πŸ™‚

    • Yes…the small details and one thing I also love is when I’m taking pictures with something in mind, focusing on an object and when I come home and see the pictures better, I sometimes discover so many cool things in those images.

      I took some pictures of a beautiful tree bark and when I got home I noticed there was this giant tree bark moth…exactly like the tree. Loved it ! πŸ™‚

      Have a happy, wonderful weekend ! πŸ™‚
