Morning Constitutionals

In and effort to exercise more, I have been trying to get out and walk everyday. For a few weeks I just squeezed it in when I could. Sometimes in the morning, sometimes during the day with the kids, or sometimes in the evenings. For the past couple of weeks I have been attempting to get it in before Mr. Cherry leaves for work which not only helps me to get it in everyday, but also allows me to walk on my own. It is a great time for me to clear my head and start to focus on the day ahead. The peace that it gives me at the start of the day is worth getting up a bit early to me. (Sometimes I wish I could get another in somewhere in the middle of my day!)

While we do live in the middle of town we have a large cemetery a block behind us and an awesome park a half mile away.

Another advantage of walking in the morning is the wildlife that I get to observe. I have seen the obvious like rabbits, squirrels, geese, and ducks to the not quite as ordinary deer to the awesome sightings of heron and a pair of fox!

The cooler mornings also work to my advantage for the time being. (I know I will need an extra layer or two if I keep this up.)

Is there anything that you do to carve out some peace during your busy day?

  1. *sigh* I need to do this. I always linger in bed and wish I had gotten up. It's just the act of getting out of bed that is the hardest! Good for you!
