One of my students told me last week i was “basic” because i always show up with an americano from starbucks...although i strongly disagree with his statement, i felt it amusing to take it up a notch and felt it was appropriate to take a picture such as this one (now i’m basic). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀thanks d. for the inspo and thank you j. for being my prop in this pic😆
on the other hand (pun intended), i’ve been finding ways to keep active outside of the conventional gym walls.
most of us spend workdays indoors under fluorescent lights in front of computers, to then return home and be in front of the tv/phone screen before bed.
i believe that we should be spending more time in natural environments if your purpose is to improve your physical and mental health. sometimes it requires to step out of your comfort zone to find that healthy balanced lifestyle.
there’s something about being outside that changes how stress is in the body... except when you get lost in dark on your way back- that i admit i was crying inside at that point. before that happened, i felt revitalized. more at peace.
if taking advantage of hiking trails near (or not so near) your home is what inspires you, then go ahead... let’s do it!
it could also mean you can play in the snow (winter is upon us faster than we may think), swimming in the ocean, or just spending time every week in a local park with a nice warm coffee in hand.
what outdoor activity do you recommend or are interested in trying?
would you be interested to be a part of a small group and hike all together?
ohhhh ma gawd, yes!! who is down to join me on a hike ? i promise there will be no getting lost this time 😬
