I was supposed to be on a casual chat catch up zoom call recently. They’re a great bunch of people, but it was warm here, with no wind, no rain, and only a light grey sky. Not bad for late November for an island in the North Atlantic. So I ditched the call, gathered up weeds, planted a few bulbs, cleaned the deck and put away the flower pots for the winter.
You don’t have to be as productive as that to get the benefit of fresh air. Take a quick walk, do a mini-clean up, stick your head out the window or door and take five deep breaths, or sit on a step and look up at the sky. (Watching clouds go by is hugely underrated in my opinion but I find looking up always gives you a different perspective.) Unless it is blowing a gale out, you won’t melt and the cobwebs will leave your brain.
