Stockbridge Down

A couple of weeks ago I was definitely kinda down, everything felt overwhelming and nothing seemed to be within my control. Life, despite the beauty and kindness of squares, was becoming kind of bleh. So MrB and I decided to turn that around by cutting down the time spent on the computer, and using the time instead to go for walks. Which is kinda why we found ourselves on Stockbridge Down. It worked wonders, as has making sure I connect with friends and also exercising daily. For other ideas and tips for a more Optimistic October visit the Action on Happiness calendar.

  1. I’m sorry you were feeling a bit helpless. It has been a busy time for you, quite apart from everything else that’s going on. I’m glad your sweetheart and you love to get out together and enjoy the fresh air. It makes so much difference to spend time with nature, even if we don’t really fancy it on a particular day.

    1. I think you are right I was just overloaded with things, hadn’t even been doing my Pilates. However now nature and Pilates happening again I am finding I feel much more robust – also avoiding too much of the news helps!

  2. Sometimes you just need to take mental days to get yourself back on track…especially in this weirdness of 2020. Beautiful capture and thank you for sharing your walk with us. πŸ™‚

      1. Glad you are feeling better! I seem to have to take one about 2 weeks after I’ve been cooped up in the house from this pandemic! It doesn’t take much for me to convince Frank I need a day off to go somewhere. He usually needs it too! πŸ™‚

      2. Glad the two of you are getting out and doing things πŸ™‚ it is vital isn’t it. We’ve been housebound again for a few days because of hospital calls, but hopefully be able to get out again tomorrow and Saturday

      3. It is absolutely vital! I think we are going to run errands today like bank and grocery. We are out of a lot of necessity items. Don’t want to, but have to. πŸ™‚
