Something to consider #1 - walks

So, here’s the great thing about walks:

  1. They cost nothing
  2. They work your muscles and body overall
  3. Fresh Air!

I know it’s hard when you’re feeling depressed and/or anxious. You may want to lay in bed and say goodbye to the world for a while (and trust me, I get it.) However, if you get that little bit of energy to get moving, don’t forget about walks. Walks are great for clearing your head, getting a little exercise, and breathing in some pure oxygen! Walks have been one of my most effective tools for combating depression and anxiety in 2020. Making a habit of doing them more could help you too.

Tips to make it your own:

  • Get a playlist for your walks (here’s a start) :
  • Get some comfy shoes; ROSS of TJMAXX has some inexpensive options

  • Maybe a Destination? I walk to a local coffee shop in my neighborhood, maybe find a close place to walk to, that can be a cool way to add to the little journey.

  • Be safe, try not to walk anywhere you are not familiar with, and alert a friend if someone makes to feel watched or unsafe; also, carrying a little extra something to make you feel safer is never a bad idea

  • REMEMBER: MASK, WATER, PHONE, Social Distancing

  • Talk to me, Bye :crescent_moon:
