The weather last week is my 100% jam. It was chilly, but sunny, and wonderful. We haven’t had enough of these days for my liking, and the more good days we have, the more I realize that I am not getting enough outside time.
When I first moved to St. Paul I would walk the neighborhoods all the time. The longer I lived there, the less I did that, and while I utilize the space in Golden Valley occasionally, it isn’t frequent enough.
My work has a personal development program that I am participating in, and part of it involves making promises. I made a promise to go on 3 – 30 minute walks per week. There was supposed to be a consequence that tied to your vices, instead I said I’d have to go on a 90 minute walk. The program is self lead, so there isn’t anyone to point out that my consequence is unrealistic and not the intended type of consequence.
Last week I accomplished all three walks, and it only reinforced that I should be doing it more often. Since starting this job in May I have now moved rooms, and finally have an outside window. I love the natural light especially because I get to see the sunrises.
After seeing all the rain today (Monday) I’m starting to wonder where exactly I’ll walk for 30 minutes this week, but hopefully we get a few more of those sunny fall days!
How often do you get outside in the fall? Does that change once it becomes winter?
