September 30 Day Challenge: Day 6
Updated: Sep 7
Go for a walk
I remember when the Pandemic first really hit, and they told us all to Quarantine ourselves for two weeks, and that two weeks "should solve it", and we can go back to normal. Umm that was in March, it's now September... I had just had a baby in March so I was super freaked out. They say first time moms have a hard time with germs anyway, and you always want to protect your baby. But how do you protect your baby from something no one knows anything about? At first, we didn't even go outside, except for when me or the babe had a doctor appointment, and even then I was so scared to leave our apartment. I think I was even one of those people that everyone seems to poke fun at who wore their mask outside. I was so scared you guys, I had to psych myself up to go outside. But I was also trying to heal from a c-section, and they want you to take small walks every day, so we started to slowly venture outside. I slowly gained more confidence, and really began to look forward to a daily walk, even if all I could do was walk up the street and back. It took me a while to heal, and to feel comfortable even being around other human beings, but I know how important it is to get outside and get fresh air. Fall is the perfect time for a walk outside. The air is cooler, crisp, you can almost smell the leaves changing. So no excuses, if you're WFH or commuting to your job, or staying home with a baby like I am, get up and get some fresh air. It doesn't have to be a full-on hike up a 14er. Just get out. Grab a cup of coffee and go for a walk. Walk your dog. Walk your babe in his stroller. Because when this is all over, and we can resume what we remember to be normal, a few of us, maybe quite a few of us, may have to walk off the Quarantine 15.
Yesterday my cousin and I took the babe up North to Longmont to this cute little farm, The Bee Hugger Farm, where you could pick your own sunflowers! It was so charming y'all. The lady who runs it keeps bees, so we bought some of her honey and beeswax (yeah, you can look forward to some projects from that in the near future!). It was such a great way to get outside and do something different for a change of scenery, I highly recommend it!
