About a week ago I decided I wanted to go hiking; I’m not sure why, I just got in my head that I really wanted to go. My mum and I talked about it and decided when to go. The first place we tried to go didn’t work out, but she remembered this trail from running and it was so peaceful and absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t get over how quiet it was, I live in an apartment, so noise is something that is always around. I thought hiking would be a good workout, but didn’t realize how relaxing it would be. I came back home and realized how stressed I had been.
I loved getting to spend some time with my mum doing something I enjoy. I’m really bad about giving myself time to decompress and it leads to a lot of anxiety. I can never emphasis enough how important it is to take care of yourself, mentally and physically. I’m still learning and days like this teach me a lot. It’s January, but on this day it was 74 degrees outside and beautiful, but that’s Texas for you. I’ve had this giant knot in my stomach the past few days and it just went away while I was out there. It’s unfortunately getting colder, so hiking will have to be put on hold until it’s a bit warmer, but I’m going to find some new things to try around where I live.
“I love the feeling of the fresh air on my face and the wind blowing through my hair.”
