Even though it’s only 6 degrees out this morning and everything is frozen I went and walked my dog anyway. She needs to get out and hey, she’s a Shepherd mix so this weather is in her wheelhouse. I am always amazed at how much better I feel. I always have that initial dread but then we get out there and (as long as it’s not windy) it ends up being quite the pleasant experience. The blood gets pumping, the lungs get working, the brain quiets, which is a rarity for me, my head clears and all I have to do is watch the sun shine on the snow.
