To me, being out in nature is as second-nature as cooking dinner or watching a TV show ... it just is. But somewhere in time, I believe electronics (in all of its forms) took over the second-nature slot, and nature itself got bumped down to third-nature. With the Pokemon Go phenomena, nature was at least bumped up to background noise, and the related exercise became an after-effect (sore muscles) rather than an intended-effect (choosing to move for movement's sake alone). I liken the nature-movement connection to something that seemingly needs to be hidden just as much as vegetables now have to be disguised within a "desirable" food or mixed in with other "acceptable" foods. Geez, what happened to just being out in nature and seeing what might happen? About being out in nature and not having to control it, or minimize it with our activities?
There's a group, NatureRx that promotes nature through its various tongue-in-cheek ads. How could this even be possible if we spent time out in nature without pretense - no plan, no control, no nothing? I hope the day comes when we need to "justify" inside time (e.g., computer time, TV time) in a similar way.
As always, balance is the key.
