Last week was crazy and this weekend was was pretty hectic as well. No matter how busy or insane life may be I always try carve out some time for myself. I consider this time to be sacred because it truly is an opportunity for me to simply separate myself from everything and just breathe.
Last week, on one of my busiest days, I had about an hour in between appointments. It had been a crazy day and I really felt as though I needed to feel my feet against the pavement. I happened to be close to a local trail that I had actually never been on before and so I went for a quick run.
It was great!
I'm a big believer in doing what you can, when you can, wherever you are. I always carry my ipod nano and headphones with me but if I think there's any chance to I might be able to get in a quick run or hike I'll throw a pair of shorts and a t-shirt in my bag too, just in case :)
Today I went on a beautiful hike on the trail above. It was just what I needed. It was almost 80 degrees out when I began and the first 20 minutes of this trail are straight up! It was challenging but I loved every second of it :)
About an hour later towards the end of my hike there was a magnificent cool breeze. As I drove down the hill the clouds began pouring into the canyon and the temperature began to drop.
It never ceases to amaze me how much better I feel when I'm able to sneak away for a little me time!
I hope you all have had a restful & relaxing weekend :)
