Change it up! It makes a world of difference...
Yesterday, was a day to get up, shower, get dressed up and out, to meet with my close friend for coffee. Out of this meeting, over a two hour catch up conversation, I was able to reconnect to the community, re-engage with my friend and make a running commitment; for today, which was a run in the 10k Jingle bell run.
I am so happy we ran today, it felt good to get out. My body would tell you otherwise, because it isn't really in the shape it could be to run the 6+ mile run, but I made it just the same. It was nice to reach for the hot cocoa afterwards. We even got some shopping in, came home with a new sweater and jacket onsemble. "Shopping Therapy." I'm not much of a shopper, but it helps when someone needs to stop at a couple of stores to do their own errands, I kept going through the clothes racks, and saying, "shopping therapy." It sure was and it worked. I feel much better! I accomplished something.
If you are feeling a little blue, I suggest getting outside, take a walk, run or just do something different. Change it up, it makes a world of difference.
