Day 4: Get Outside for at least 20 minutes- just you and the crisp air.
Breathe it in and try to find some sunshine.
The Blurb: Getting outside is good for the soul. Even just a few minutes of the sun hitting your skin causes vitamin D levels to rise, which helps all sorts of ailments. This time of year it’s especially important to do this to help drive away the “winter blues.” I’m a firm believer that nature has the power to heal you. It may sounds trite, but every time I go up in the mountains or to the beach or take a walk in the sun, everything seems more clear and my problems don’t seem as insurmountable. I come back refreshed with a new outlook on things, ready to tackle the day.
Suggestions: Go for a brisk walk. Take a drive (If you’re in Utah and the valley is overcast, go up to Park City!) Go for a run with your dog. Bundle up the kids and make a snowman. Go skiing or snowshoeing. Have a “winter-picnic.” Go snowmobiling. Take a drive to a lake. Dress warm and read a good book on your porch. Have the family meal outside by a fire.
Keeping it Real: Everyone can pull this one off because you don’t have to go anywhere special, it doesn’t have to cost money and the time investment is minimal. So turn off the TV’s, shut down the computers, grab the family, go outside to do something active. I guarantee you’ll feel revitalized and ready to take on the rest of the day.
Today I went with my family to visit the Ice Castles in Midway. This was AMAZING! If you live in Utah and haven’t been there, it’s totally worth the drive!
