Weekend Hike

8 Jan

epic hike 2

Good morning!  How are you all doing today?  How is your week going?  My week is going good, but I am finding that is is hard to get back into the swing of things.  Anyone else feel that way?  I am excited for all of my classes, and I am excited to get to work on my goals for the year, but it all feels a little daunting too.  There is just so much I want to accomplish before we move to Milwaukee. This year in Oregon has goon by so fast, and it is hard to believe we only have 5 and a half months left!

As, I said before, Jonathan and I went on a really cool hike over the weekend.  You can’t really tell from the picture but we are up really high.  There is this amazing forrest behind our apartment with tons of trails, and it is a great way to be in nature in a short amount of time.

We have found that getting outside and walking/hiking has done amazing things for our mental health.  This is something I MUST remember throughout my life because no matter how I am feeling, if I get outside and walk, I always feel better!  It is also a great time for good conversation.  Jonathan and I always have fun talking about life and the future as we tromp through the forrest (or neighborhood)!

So, I highly recommend taking a quick break from your day and walking.  You can walk anywhere as long as it is outside, and I promise, it will feel good!  And, it is a great way to explore your city!

Have a great day!

    Michele, you are so encouraging to me! Thanks for the uplifting message about walking. Yesterday I went for my first walk since coming back from our trip to Mexico and it truly does what you say! Keep up the good work!
