When I was little, I used to look up at the sky and determine that a cloud looked like an animal or a different shape. I am sure a lot of us have this memory from our childhoods. As I got older, I looked at the clouds less frequently, but I can still look at the clouds and pick shapes out of them every once and a while. After reading clouds, it gave me a newfound interest in cloud watching. There are several benefits to cloud watching. It causes you to relax and destress and forgot about life’s problems for a short time. It can give us a needed break from the pressures of life. It provides us with a chance to use our imaginations and is a recommended activity for children and adults. It can also help us to be more focused. Just looking at a cloud and focusing on it can help us become more aware and focused.
