I'm going to start back up with this little tid bit of news I came across and LOVED.
I noticed that although we were walking 24/7 and I felt exhausted it seemed in Europe,
my moods were still up.
And after reading this, I realized it's because I was outside every day.
Something I take for grantid almost daily.
The answer is to go outside!
Researchers analyzed 10 studies involving 1,252 people and learned
that 5 minutes of light exercise outdoors can boost self-esteem and brighten mood.
The effects were even greater if the time was spent near water.
All participants-but especially kids and the mentally ill-
benefited from walking, gardening, biking
or other outdoor activities.
I say let's take advantage of those beautiful mountains we live right next too:).
Especially now that fall is right around the corner!
