In July, our action word as we begin the second year of our Caregiving Happiness Project is Walk.
I love this one because we can use it for two purposes. Walking is great exercise. It’s also a terrific coping strategy that we often overlook. When I’m overwhelmed, I try to remember to walk because, when I do, I am calm and collected when the walk ends. The movement helps to me move away from distress and replace it with “Oh, I know what to do!”
For me, I’m going to walk:
1. To a new destination twice a week.
2. When I’m feeling overwhelmed.
3. Twice a day three times a week.
I look forward to hearing how you’ll walk in July; please share in our comments section, below.
