One of my favourite things to do is to go for walks. I know, that sounds really lame, but I get a lot out of going for walks. It’s a big de-stresser for me – especially if I’m walking amongst trees, or near flowers or the ocean. I think a lot while I walk. If I’m sitting at my desk and feeling uninspired or a little stuck, I get out for a walk and chances are ideas will come to me. And then of course, there’s the exercise aspect. It’s just so good to get up and move!
So I’ve been trying to get out every day for a walk. I’ve said this before, but I work in a really beautiful setting. I’m walking distance from a river, a canal, an arboretum (trees!!), and coffee shops.
It’s actually crazy that I wouldn’t get out for a walk every day. But you know how it is. You’re at work, head down focused on something and the time just slips away. Or you feel lazy.
I often feel lazy.
But it’s one of those things that once I get up and out I think, why don’t I do this more often!
So my new (ok, repeat) habit for this summer is to get out for a walk every day.
You with me?
