Anytime I feel stressed, I take a walk.
I breathe in the fresh air.
I take in the pretty flowers and bees going about their business.
And suddenly all is well.
Fresh air and a little exercise — cures me every time :)
Yesterday I sat on my floor studying BioChem all day long. I was starting to feel a little bit stir crazy, to say the least.
When I used to work full time, I would ALWAYS take a lunch time walking break. Every single day, no matter what. I always returned to the office feeling refreshed and ready to get back to work. So yesterday I took my own advice and headed out for a late afternoon study break walk :)
I headed to the super cute little trail in the woods near my house. I love it.
I can’t believe the last time I was out on this trail it was all covered in snow! I got some beautiful photos that day. :)
I think I prefer cabins covered in snow with wreaths on them ;)
The walk was JUST what I needed. I will be doing this more often in the next few weeks as my studying continues! My BioChem “Final of Death” is August 6th. I’m taking the course online (worst idea ever), and this is our ONLY grade. Gah. No pressure.
How do you de-stress?
I’m off to my last Microbiology class! Our take home final exams and final papers are due, and I’m giving a presentation on the Plague with my partner (who is awesome — that never happens! Hi Michelle :) ). This class has been a combination of fascinating and terrifying. I sure won’t miss the hour plus commute (each way), nor will I miss learning about all the horrible bacterial infections that are lurking around every corner, but I will miss my new friend and partner Michelle!
Have a great day :)
