Powered by Mom Shares her 15 Minutes – Take a Break!
15 minutes of what? 15 minutes for me to take a break, stretching, getting off my computer chair and taking a walk. That’s one of my goals this year is to get back to my 15 minutes. Yesterday was the first day back at it where I dragged hubby, daughter and the two dogs out for a walk and then it started to rain but you know what it wasn’t so bad in fact I enjoyed it.
Over the summer I was very good at taking at least a 15 minute break away from my computer work to ease those weary eyes. Of course it was much easier to do during the summer when the sun was shining and I could feel the glorious heat as I stepped outside into my back yard. Oh how I long for the sunshine, well you know what I will get some sunshine right now, maybe not as warm nor as often but it will come out.
Oops sorry got distracted talking about the sun, back to that 15 minutes, it can make a world of difference to give yourself (or myself) that break and in the grand scheme of things 15 minutes or 30 minutes is not that long but can do a lot of good! So while my 12 year old daughter might not have been thrilled with the walk in the rain yesterday the fresh air and exercise did her good and did her mom and dad a world of good.
While everyone was out of the house today (Monday) I kept on with my goal and took the chihuahua for a walk and made it 30 minutes. I enjoyed walking around the “hood”, the fresh air, stretching my legs and that 30 minutes made me feel I accomplished something today. So that’s my goal just 15 minutes or maybe more rain or shine to get away from my computer and walk but maybe if it’s raining super duper hard I’ll walk up and down the stairs and still get that stretch.
15 minutes or more can make a big difference what do you do to just give yourself a much needed break?
