I don’t know how I got anything accomplished when I lived in the Northwest. It’s dark and rainy today and all I want to do is crawl back in bed, drink endless cups of coffee and tea, and read. Especially since it’s Tuesday, by far my least favorite day of the week.
One thing I remember helping when I lived in Portland was to just get outside no matter the weather and so that’s what I did this morning when I was puttering around, feeling entirely aimless.
As soon as I took my first breath of fresh air my mood changed and even the dark sky looked a little brighter.
Moral of the story, the outdoors do this body, mind, and soul lots of good.
