Day 4: Spread the Neighbourhood Love

Day 4! We are doing good. How have you done so far? Robyn decided to join the challenge and yesterday she left for work half an hour early and walked all the way to the subway station (about 2km).  Good work Robyn!

One way I get outdoors a few times a week is walking to the post office to ship packages. I try to build it into my day around 4 in the afternoon, and it takes an hour, maybe a little longer (if I stop to visit...which I almost always do).  I feel lucky to do this partially because I LOVE my neighbourhood, and partially because it is a perfect segue into the evening supper, hockey, family part of my day.

My local post office is in a part of Toronto called the Junction. The Junction is full of eclectic stores, fragrant restaurants, and bustling coffee shops. The walk there is along a side street with lovely houses, and big trees, then into the shop part of the Junction, where I can get a coffee, a treatie, ship my packages, and pick something up for dinner. The perfect mix of peace, and activity. 

What part of your day would you, could you fit a daily walk? Does your day have a rhythm that a walk could bridge? What's your neighbourhood like? Send us a pic at #outdoorseveryday #yourneighbourhood #junction

It's not like the olden days where I had to wrestle four kids, a stroller, a diaper bag, and 3 snowsuits, to go to the store! Now I just have to put my shells over my pjs and get goin'.

 I was considering taking a selfy holding up today's paper standing out side Shoppers Drug Mart, but that seemed perhaps overkill, and I figured everyone would trust me if I said I did go out.
