Allergic to alll greenery outdoors but I love walking and exploring so do it anyway 😂😂
I’m always looking for good walking areas and I found a couple of locations to go to: flatter trail closest to home and a split trail that goes to two parks about 10 minutes away. With the advent of the coronavirus, the walkways been more congested than usual so I try to go at odd times and hotter parts of the day. My joints LOVE heat so this is a win-win.
Getting outdoors allows for a change of scenery and can produce endorphins to make you feel better. And I love warmer weather so getting in a sweat is a plus! My acupuncturist is all about walking outdoors as nature, especially green and trees, relaxes the body. And with stress levels through the roof, who doesn’t need a way to relax?!
I truly hope this finds you well, safe and healthy. Have you found a place to get away? If so, drop a line below; I’d love to hear from you! 🥂 to your good health.
So I’ve been in social/physical distancing for 7 weeks now…. and when the weather is great, I go out for a walk since our gym is closed. Thankfully, my apartment complex has been posting suggestions of walking trails that are still open during this time. Today, I decided to check out the Riverwalk in a neighboring town.
Riverwalk is actually part of a walking trail between two parks and can extend to a local mountain area. Now, I didn’t walk that far! (I wasn’t thinking recently, ate food with paprika which is a nightshade and aggravated joint pain.) It’s a really pretty area, a bit hillier than what I am accustomed to. While I wore a face covering, I only saw one other couple that had on masks so the next time I go, it will definitely be earlier in the day for fewer people.
I truly believe walking and just being in a nature is therapy. Well, it is for me. And it’s great exercise…and with heavy pollen winding down, it’s a great opportunity to get outside of my four walls and get a change of scenery.
Below are more pictures from exploring today.
How has your physical distancing been? What have you learned from it? I am doing a series of chats with friends of activities or ideas that they have been involved in during this time; we will be on Instagram. I chose that platform so that I can have another person on with me. If you are interested in checking it out, my IG is msinternationalsuperstar. This time may be difficult for some and let’s all be a help to one another by connecting. As always, until next time….
