When you wake up on Saturday morning feeling full of stress and anxiety (heyyyy….that’s so not supposed to happen on Saturday)
The best thing, the VERY best thing to do
is eat a good breakfast…..
put on clothes as fast as you can, drive across the bridge…..
and go for a hike
preferably along the water
somewhere with amazing views……..
where no matter where you look, you can’t see any houses or cars…
and even though you’re with friends, a fiancé, and a dog,
you still can stay lost in thought
’cause before you know it…..
6 miles later….
you’ll feel soo much better. And all that anxiety and stress will be left behind
Instead, you’ll be grateful for all the good things— the bright blue skies in January…..the day off work….the puppy kisses….and so much more.
And that way, you’ll set yourself up for a good weekend.
A really good weekend (oh and by the way, the 49ers won!!! Yeah!!!)
Yeah, so that was my weekend– feeling totally stressed out for no particular reason– just leftover from a busy week and a big week ahead. The hike helped, watched the 49er game, taught a class of cute/rowdy 6th graders on Sunday, went to the beach and lunch with my sis, counted dog toys from the event, and caught up on emails…and suddenly, the week is starting all over again…and I still have, among other things, an enormous pile of laundry that hasn’t been done. Weekends are too short. Letting go is a good thing. It will get done eventually. Life is good.
– Did you feel stressed or relaxed this weekend?
– What’s one thing you didn’t have time for this weekend? (my big one was laundry)
– Can you hike in the winter where you live?
– Did you do anything outdoors this weekend?
