A walk in the woods?
A walk in the woods during the daytime can be an amazing experience to help you reset, refresh, clear your mind, as you breathe deeply and take in some wonderful sights and colours, especially at this time of year.
If you look closely, you may even notice that life and ecosystems on a miniature level thrive all over our planet and you might be pleasantly surprised if you look for the beauty in natures imperfections. We are encouraged to get fresh air and to dress for the weather as the days of fall see temperatures starting to lower. Being in nature gives our eyes a chance to take in natural light and when you are in front of screens all day it can help to get away for a few moments if possible.
For many of us in urban areas, the confinement that comes with population density coupled with a lack of public parks and open spaces can often make it challenging to get out often. A short 5 to 15 walk on your lunch hour or any time of day can be truly revitalizing to your mental and physical well–being as we have found it to be a great habit.
We are usually encouraged to be aware of the need to exerciseeven if it is for just short period. Adding a sound meditative practice to your daily routine that works for you can do a world of good to your mental well-being when the stress which we all experience can seem overwhelming. In our professions, being in front of screens for our work week can take its toll and each hour our team is encouraged to take 5-10 minutes to stand, reflect, listen to something inspiration, close our eyes and breathe deeply or whatever we need to do to clear our minds and refresh our energy.
Small consistent actions can dramatically improve productivity, improve focus, allowing us to constantly hydrate and also regularly move makes that afternoon snack a welcome treat that doesn’t burn us out. Drinking plenty of water is critical for our team and also helps to managing eye strain while keeping our brains healthy.
In eastern Canada sunlight and warmth are becoming limited so we need to constantly adapt our behaviors with each season to keep a good work life and energy balance intact. Talking a walk in +20 or -20 degrees Celsius can be both awesome as long as you are dressed with the appropriate attire.
We noticed that in several of our communities during the Pandemic many people around the world adopted pets to help deal with the social anxieties we were all experiencing. Some of our little creatures and friends also need to get out, exercise, and get fresh air so we hope that wherever you live, whatever your circumstances, you take a daily moment this week to simply reset.
When you close your eyes, take some deep breathes and reflect with gratitude for the gifts you have been given and especially if you are in good health, sometimes the simplest of realizations can make that difficult time or moment easier to handle.
