Go Outside

I’ve been considering dropping this exercise. Not because it isn’t useful — both research and my own experience agree that going outside can have huge benefits for my mood. But as the weather warms, it’s more likely that I’ll be spending time outside anyway, so I debated whether I really needed the reminder.

I decided to keep it for now, though I may decrease its frequency over the summer. I’ve noticed that, while going outside is good in any case, it’s much more beneficial to me if my focus is on taking a walk or gardening than on, for example, mowing the lawn. Hopefully this exercise will serve to remind me to really enjoy my outside time.

Today promises to be lovely, with the opportunity for lots of gardening and perhaps another walk with the kids.

Happy Monday!
