When you feel yourself getting overcome with stress, your cure may be as simple as a walk in the park. Sometimes all you need is a little exercise and some fresh air to get your mind clear and ready to face whatever comes next.
Working to your breaking point and beyond can be detrimental. Once you reach the point that you’re burnt out, it’s harder to recover. If you can take a quick breather and get your mind off of things, even if it’s only for 10 minutes, you will likely come back feeling at least a little better.
Walking in the park is effective in many ways. Fresh air always does your mind and body some good, getting your heart rate up is a great way to alleviate stress and feel good, and the serene surroundings of the park can be mellowing to your soul. It’s also free and almost always open.
It’s something you can do alone, with your dog, or you can get a friend or spouse to join you. Another person around will help if you need to talk through some things, or just have an enjoyable mindless conversation to get your mind off the things that are getting to you.
