About This Quiz
There is no wrong way to appreciate nature. Watering your plants helps them thrive in your garden. Laying out on the beach is good for your soul. Going for a hike allows you to appreciate things that most people don't see. Nature is huge and it doesn't only refer to grass and trees. Nature is an environment. Your ideal nature adventure could be skiing down the hardest trail. But it could also mean just going for a walk outside and breathing in the fresh air.
Sometimes the way we feel about nature can be different and challenging to figure out. Ever been stung by a bee? Maybe you feel like nature betrayed you. But that bee sting has made you stronger. Unless you're allergic to bees, of course. The point is, nature can be dangerous, but everything you see outside of your window has a purpose. Maybe the purpose is for the improvement of the earth as a whole, but maybe it just feeds your mind, body and soul. It's okay to see parts of nature as being there purely for your enjoyment. But it's also okay to wonder what the point of it all is. What kind of relationship do you have with nature? Take this quiz to find out!
