Getting out

By February 15, 2011February 29th, 2012No Comments

I remember going to listen to one of my mentors (Dr. Dickson Thom) and he always emphasized that there should be no reason why we should not venture out every single day (even if it is just 15 minutes). Get some light, fresh air and expose ourselves to the elements – connect with our environment. Those were the main points about going out he emphasized.
Now I am one who is known for really, really disliking the cold. But I made a decision this year to really prioritize the important things in my life – and my health is obviously VITAL to me. So I have been doing this – despite our very snowy start this year. Yes – it can be a little dangerous even if you are wearing the proper shoes, coat, gloves and hat! I have a very dear friend who unfortunately fractured her wrist when she slipped in a patch of ice. But I really think that a leisurely stroll is something that poses minimum risk . The fresh air will do you wonders, even if the sun is not shining, you are still going to benefit from some light exposure. If it is snowing you will love the stillness that it brings with it. You’ll breathe a little deeper and come in feeling like your house is too warm! Your circulatory system will thank you for this.
So next time you are struggling deciding what to do – like I mentioned even 15 minutes makes a difference.
