Even on the cold overcast days of winter, I love to get outside and experience nature to destress. Those winter weather walks are a treasure.
Taking my dog Lady for a walk around a nearby lake, listening to her panting on the trail, watching her ears perk up when she spies a squirrel ahead – those are all simple joys.
Sometimes exercise becomes too much measurement and intensity. Getting prepared for the upcoming holidays and travel can be a bit stressful. After a particularly intense week, a walk around an outdoor trail is just the ticket.
It definitely makes me enjoy the intense days more.
How about you? What do you do to destress during the holidays?
