The Joy of Spring
I have recently been asked by a number of people what I plan to do with myself now that ski season is over. Fear not! I love spring and summer too!
Have you been outside lately? Have you seen the changes in the trees and plants? I take a daily walk through my neighborhood and up onto the nearby mesa, and check out the little changes that happen every day - the trees budding out, the wildflowers blooming. The wildlife is out and about, as well (watch out for rattle snakes!).
Nature nurtures me in a way that still surprises me sometimes. Just getting out for that little walk recharges my batteries in a way that nothing else can. Sure, I enjoy some higher-octane activities like rock climbing and mountain biking as well, but my daily walks this spring have been a great boost to my well-being.
So that's my prescription for good health this spring - get out there and walk!
