See, I work doing in-home therapy. My schedule involves a decent amount of extra time between appointments so I can get between even if I hit a little traffic, and I had found over the summer that the time between 2 of my clients tended to be way too much. I would bring my lunch to eat in-between, but have nowhere to go to eat it so I'd end up going and getting fast food and sitting down to eat it.
Not sure what took me so long to think of it, but this week I decided I would find a park somewhere between my two clients where I could go to eat during the nice days. And oh did I find a park! And it is glorious.
These were my companions during my short lunch break today...
I got so distracted by the turtles, they were just so relaxing to watch, that I never got to reading my book I had brought. Monday I sat by the water on a little dock and read a book while I ate, then read my book on a swing when I was done eating. Yes, I love swings. I'm a full grown adult, I will never stop! It's such a pretty and peaceful place. I predict that going to the park during my breaks, getting fresh air, going for walks or swinging on the swings instead of sitting on my butt the whole time will make a pretty good difference in my life. Cause it's the little things, really, right?
