A few weeks back I realised I hadn’t left the house for four days. I was shocked when I realised this as pre-covid I was walking at least two hours everyday and wouldn’t have been able to tell you the last day I didn’t leave the house. I was getting sad and my back was hurting, I needed to get out of this new habit and quick.
Nic and I now have a rule that we must leave the house at least onve every single day. Most of the time it’s at least an hours walk, but occasional we’ll do a twenty minute walk around the block just to get out. Today it was chucking it down with rain all day, but we still dragged ourselves out to the shop and back for an hours walk in the dark. It’s doing me the world of good mentally, and my back has stopped aching!
