Nature and movement

My mind was spinning this morning, with a hundred tasks fighting their way on to an imaginary to-do list. Even as I meditated, then lifted weights, I could feel the pressure of negative thoughts vying to take hold. 

I ended my morning routine with an ‘earbud-free’ run down our road, listening to sounds, and smelling the smells of spring; birds, wind, dirt. 

At the fifteen minute mark, it was as if a veil had been lifted, the problems all seemed to turn into opportunities, and I even got to take a selfie with a passing moose.

Two important variables in the formula for happiness are nature and movement

When they are added to your day, the psychological payback is immediate. 

Movement x Nature x Connection x Sleep x Fun x Purpose = Happiness

Next time you are in funk, get outside and start walking. 

My prediction is that by the twenty minute mark the world looks a whole lot brighter.

  • Now that’s a peak ethos.
