Break Time: Exploring Pocket Creek

“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.”  ― Amit Ray, Om Chanting and Meditation

It’s the middle of your busy day and you’re about to burst from the stress building up inside you, it’s time to take a a moment and center yourself.

I love meditation but I’m not a pro and it takes me a while to get in a mindset to really meditate, I don’t always have that kind of time.  One of my favorite ways to chill out quickly is to strap on my noise-cancelling headphones and find a short, zen-like video on YouTube.

Exploring Pocket Creek is less than four minutes in length and, in that time, there is no dialogue, no harsh sounds, and nothing to spike your blood pressure.  Grab your phone, tablet, headphones, or relax in your computer chair as you sit back and focus solely on the nature of Pocket Creek:

I spent the day exploring Pocket Creek along the Shirley Miller Wildflower Trail which is in the Crockford-Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Management Area located just west of Lafayette, GA. This area has unique natural features that effect temperature, humidity, sunlight, soil characteristics and plant life. During my visit wildflowers were blooming in abundance. A blue-green algae which is highly photosynthetic this time of year gave the creek an unusual look. At the head of the creek is a nice waterfall with a small cave behind it. From talking to the locals I learned the creek is spring fed and has nice flows only after a heavy rain.
