Nature — The Best Mood Lifter

Nothing lifts your mood like time spent outdoors (especially walking through the unforgettable spiraling sunken garden at the J Paul Getty Museum in L.A.) My family and I traveled to Los Angeles for some spring break R&R. These photos were taken at the Getty’s central garden.

Ambling, breathing the fresh air, admiring the colorful blossoms and artful plantings — we all felt revitalized and ready to tackle 19th-century art.


This weekend, be sure to spend some time outdoors. Call a friend, walk the dog, pull some weeds, wash the car — or better yet, just get yourself outside and enjoy nature — rain or shine!
