EmpoweringRetreat.com's collection of tranquil photos of rivers, streams, and lakes -- designed to inspire viewers of the wonders of nature for happy, healthy living.We've found that one of the best ways to calm ourselves and fit the stress that builds up from daily living is to take a break away from that stress. We can do this in person, by taking a walk or bike ride to a nearby park or forest. Or, if we are stuck inside, we can do it by immersing ourselves into one or more pictures -- and that's what this section of EmpoweringRetreat.com is all about. Simply click on a thumbnail image below and a new page will open with the full-size picture for you to enjoy. Let yourself be lost in these pictures, imagining yourself there rather than wherever you happen to be. Enjoy -- and surrender to the beauty and tranquility!
