Sometimes it takes seeing things from beyond our atmosphere, to feel a little more grounded. In the midst of all of the craziness, it’s important to remember that we are far more than just what we see on Facebook. We are also apart of something bigger! Something a heck of a lot more beautiful than a Twitter comment section.

We still get to live and breathe on the only known inhabitable planet for light years and that’s pretty cool.

From space, everything is still looking pretty good and thanks to the folks at the international space station, who are constantly taking pictures of our big, blue planet, as well as the NASA Johnson YouTube Channel we know that for a fact!

Though we don’t want to take away from our problems, we believe that a quick mindless scroll and breather certainly wouldn’t hurt – so inhale, take a moment and drift off with NASA’s 20 most favourite photos taken of Earth this year.
