Many of you have probably seen the beautiful beach pictures I post on Facebook and Twitter. If you haven't liked my page on Facebook, please do at https://www.facebook.com/jenniferhmoyer. You can also follow me on Twitter @MoyerJennifer
I am blessed to live in a beautiful coastal community so every Wednesday, I do my best to walk on the beach. This is my weekly therapy event. During the summer, I had limited opportunity to incorporate my "therapy event" but the past several weeks, I tried to make it a priority to walk as I was more stressed due to the graduate class I was taking. By the way, for those of you that read my last blog: Time Management and Managing Stress, I got an A- for my final grade in the class. So the hard work was rewarded :)
I have found that taking that weekly walk grounds me and clears my perspective no matter what is going on in my life. I encourage you to find something similar in your life. The benefits of exercise for our mental health are tremendous. Hiking, walking, running, swimming or another physical activity are all great ways to clear your mind and help manage stress. I am feeling the difference in my life by getting back to my weekly walks on the beach. No matter what the season, there is something about the beauty of nature that helps me maintain a fresh and grateful perspective. What do you do to help maintain a healthy perspective and manage stress in your life?
