Health and wellness tip
Spend a little time outside daily
Take a stroll or walk through a local park, take a walk down the street, if you have a dog take them too even just walk to your letter box and back. Try it; it’s rejuvenating, even just for a 10 minutes, it is a great way to enlighten your spirits without even trying, it puts you in touch with nature, which studies show can actually benefit our brains, prevent depression, and exposes us to the most natural source of vitamin D available to us: the sun (don’t forget to be sun safe and slip, slop, slap, seek and slide).
We have a wonderful thread on the online network called Favorite quotes! So to wrap up this weeks post, I wanted to share one of my favorites with you.
Have a lovely weekend.
