It’s really hard to get up in the morning to go outside for a walk when it’s dark! Not only is it dark when my alarm goes off but it’s still dark when Gail and I finish our walk. I want so badly to just curl up deeper under my wool quilt and pretend it’s not morning. Just let me be a bear in hibernation for a little longer each day.
But the morning calls to us and we go. This morning there was a smile in the heavens made of the crescent moon and 2 bright planets. Worth getting up for.
Don’t let the dark days of winter defeat your goals of getting outdoors. Accept the Outdoor Dark Days Challenge to do one fantastically fun thing outdoors each week. It can be as simple as a winter walk or go all the way to a day on the slopes, snowshoe in the woods or get those skinny skis out on the trails. Better yet take a child sledding and let your inner child come along.
Let me know what you’re doing! Would love to hear all about it!
