A walk in the woods
Walking away from the computer and into the woods is one of my favorite ways of managing stress. A walk in the woods allows me to step away from the challenges on my desk, re-focus my thoughts, and intentionally encounter the present. Here are some photos from today’s walk:
As a friend wrote recently in her blog, “when I step back from our routine activities and try to see things with fresh eyes, I am reminded how much there is of value and beauty in the everyday.” I need to be sure to take time to reset . . . move away from the speed, chaos, and busyness around me . . . to stop processing what-could-have-been and what-might-be . . . to take a walk in the woods.
