Day 26: It seems to be working

Day 26: It seems to be working

Good morning Challengers, Day 26!!
Well, my post from yesterday really seemed to cause a bit of a stir. I heard from a few different people that they had been feeling 'flat' as well. My friend Ruth suggested to crank the '80's music loud, and dance your troubles away, and she's a pretty happy person, so I imagine her advice works.
Feeling not as energetic as I usually am, I wondered if I was experiencing some February blahs, (the ones I used to call my sister complaining about every year) and so I went and dug back through the Outdoors Everyday archives to see if this had happened before. 
Well, it seems as if the challenge has effectively staved off this end of winter curse. I had to go back to 2017 to find evidence of winter blues, and it was a post on February 24, 2017 labelled SAD. In that post I said, while I had been out everyday, I hadn't spent a lot of time outdoors, and committed to spending two hours out side that day. The next day I reported feeling amazing and figured a good dose of fresh air and sunshine had fixed me. 
All that said, I don't think you can ever go wrong spending a couple hours outdoors getting some sunshine and fresh air. Last night I was out for two hours playing shinny, getting the fresh air, but sadly no sunshine. I'll keep you posted if that was enough to restore me, if not, I'll be dedicating myself to some suntime.

Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day.

Today's photo prompt is inspired by Bobby finding an old SD card, and finding some old pictures on it. It seems to be an old picture kind of day, because Raynbow posted a picture of herself from likely twenty years ago! The prompt-something over 20 years old.

My first challenge is going to be to dress warm. Maybe an obvious one, when you experience Canadian winters, but I notice I am always underdressed (I have an amazing spring jacket collection that I love showing off)But todays challenge is to wear your winter coat. Everyone put on your mittens, hats... even scarves.Then go outside.Robyn

Good Day Challengers.
Wow! Somehow February started without me really noticing and here we are at February 7 and for the first time in over 10 years, I don't have the challenge up and running. To be fair I was hit hard my the flu last week, but I'm here now and ready to be challenging :)
I've reached out to other outdoorsy people to share some of their winter insights, so I'm excited to see what outdoorsy shenanigans we can get up to this year.

Day 30: goodbye until next year
Day 30: goodbye until next year

Over the years this challenge has gotten me out the door more times than I can count-and I’ve always. Yes always, felt better for it because to quote my good outdoorsy friend Renee. Getting out the door is the hardest part. ( I may be paraphrasing
