This is George. He’s my dog and he’s pretty energetic. He LOVES going for walks. This is his, “WALK!” face. 🙂

A few days ago our weather felt like a lovely day in April instead of January, so George and I took advantage of that fact and took a walk at lunchtime. That wasn’t my plan for lunchtime though, I intended on running errands, starting laundry, and doing other various ‘mom’ things during my lunch break. I almost did all of those other things, but when I walked to my car from the office and saw the lovely blue sky and felt the warmth of the sun, I decided all of my other stuff could wait. It was a good reminder that wellness is more than just eating all of the right foods and exercise. Wellness means being outside in nature too. During my walk I soaked up that sunshine and just enjoyed being outside and moving. It was a huge boost to my mood and well-being.

Even if the weather is cold, still bundle up and get outside and absorb some of those benefits. Did you know that Dr. Mandy walks Jude to school every morning? If it’s cold, they run. 🙂
