No it’s not the sun has super powers or is it? 😂
The start of this month was not easy, I had to push myself most days just to get my fat ass up and move but it has finally been a full month I completed.
I have some pervious posts if you feel like you want to read the beginning of my little afternoon adventures.
I started this quest after a job loss, basically I had given up on practically everything in my life. I would wake up and be so exhausted from the night before sleep that I would go straight back down on the lounge. (It was a really depressing time, I wouldn’t lie. Probably one of my worse episodes). I was scared I felt drained, uninspired just lifeless.
I did the usual thing I normally do and rushed off to my doctors office and demanded new pills, better pills because the ones I was currently taking clearly aren’t working! My doctor assured me it was normally to feel somewhat down about the current events that I was enduring. I took that home with an attitude, she wasn’t going to help God they never do! Never do they listen to me! I’ll do it myself I concluded. That afternoon I went frantic searching all types of ways to heal this death I felt inside. That’s when I came across many study’s that had evidence going outside it would help improve my mood by increasing Serotonin so I wouldn’t just be a slump of skin laying on the couch day in and day out.
That was a month ago..
Today life has changed and although not drastically different it is in the process of improvement. I have goals again, a sense of wanting to achieve my dreams. Setting myself up so that this time next year I will be in a much better place not just financially but mentally and physically, perhaps even spiritually. I never thought in a million years that something as simple as walking outside for as little as half an hour then sitting as my dog plays for another would be part of the answer to happiness and success.
I am still in disbelief and I’m the one that transformed haha.
Life has been good to me and I thank the universe everyday for the positive I see in the world and it’s beauty. The suns rays feel different on my skin, it’s hard to explain but I feel more than before but it’s not pain.
With in this month I have started an online business selling my handmade products, enrolled back into university to finish my degree and found my passion to creatively express myself again. all from spending more time outside amongst nature.
Life is beautiful if you just slow down take the time and notice it. Once you start to notice the beauty, the ugly fades away !
My life has changed because I spent time outdoors just four weeks and my mentality has done a complete 360, it’s so simple you can do it to. I encourage you to get up and get outside embraces it’s natural benefits.
For now J x
