Yet one more study has shown that hiking/walking in nature improves physical and mental health (I suspect spiritual health as well). That’s all the excuse I need to make it a priority. Not that it hasn’t been – but maybe even more so.
Let me explain: this morning I received Simon’s edits of chapter two of my manuscript. I was sorely tempted to cancel my planned hike to Heart Lake and dive right in. I’m excited!
But I took myself in hand (weird expression) and told myself, no – you are getting your little arse out there.
Which I did – and of course it was wonderful. My mind scatter-shot its way down myriad byways of my mind until it hit a lovely dead-end and stopped. Abby and I had a beautiful time huffing and puffing our way up to the top and then turning around.
The rain started at the exact second we got back to the car. Coincidence?
Now, the real excitement of the day begins – and I don’t mean just lunch, although that is certainly reason to celebrate. Nope – what’s even better is that Simon and I are going to scout out more RVs.
Hitting the road is around the corner – and that’s one of the laneways my mind drifted into this morning – what to do to prepare and what to pack?
