The times I feel most alive and creative are on my feet.
|The right drink|
Going from the constant action of summer camp to lethargy at home sapped me. I felt myself growing sad and didn't want that, so I took to heart the human need to walk at least six thousand steps everyday.
An old wellness professor told me six thousand steps a day means less anxiety and depression, that the brain simply works better.
I go where I walked my dogs. Far down the side of the street then onto a hidden sidewalk leading into a large neighborhood of beautiful houses, thick trees, and sloping sidewalks. The sprinklers come on around 8 am, a little fact known from my dog walking days. I enjoyed it more than they did.
Hot days mean feeling the heat rolling down my back in wave after wave. Cooler days are brisk walks with music in my ears.
Are you the Elizabeth Bennet of walking or do you get creativity going another way?
