    proofreading

    Hi,

    could you please proofread the following text (especially the highlighted parts):

    Nature serves as a source of inspiration. It is our almost forgotten origin. A stay in the open evokes feelings setting us free from daily stress and opening something new. If we connsciously sacrifice the comfort offered by our modern work day, we will turn our attention to the substance. The aim is to reveal already forgotten human intrinsic values.

    Thank you very much.

    Hanka

If we consciously sacrificed the comfort offered by our modern work day, we will (would) turn our attention (avert our gaze to) to the substance (to essence). The aim is to reveal (restore) already forgotten (long lost??) human intrinsic values.

    Thank you very much.

    Re: proofreading

    Obviously better than me I usually translate from English into my native language, so I have problems when it comes to translations into English.
