After a couple of days hunched over my laptop, working despite feeling unwell, and coming to crunch time for a whole bunch of deadlines, it was tempting to think “No…just have one more cup of coffee…you can’t afford the time to go for a walk…”
Thankfully the more sensible part of my brain overruled in favour of fresh air, sun on my face, the sound of birds (and lawnmowers), and discovering new views. This is the view from the top of the hill, in the next street along from us.
You can’t help but be restored, looking at a view like that!
It took about 15 mins to walk around the block at a reasonable pace, enough to get my heart rate up. Now my mind is clear and ready to tackle the next task. And I am not so hunched as I sit down again, either.
