Day One: The cold is a just mindset

Day One: The cold is a just mindset

Welcome. Welcome very brave outdoorsy folks. 
Welcome to the 2019 Outdoors Everyday 30 Day Challenge.
This year I once again find myself at my mom's house. It's getting to be a tradition, facing February from Dundas, Ontario. 
I hope I can encourage and inspire you to join me in 30 days of overcoming the temptation to stay indoors, with the assurance that you'll feel better if you go out for even just a little bit. Face February head on, not be afraid of a little cold and join me on a daily foray into the outdoors. It'll be fine, don't worry, it'll be worth it, and more than likely, you will feel better for it. 
But it's cold you say.
Yes it is, but if you bundle, and take a few extra minutes to find your really warm fleece sweater, it will make all the difference. 
That was a note to self, disregard if you have your sweater handy.
Until tomorrow have an outdoorsy day.
The photo prompt for Day one:
Take a picture showing how cold it is, so you can be extra proud of yourself for going out.

Day 27: outdoors as a sensory experience.
Day 27: outdoors as a sensory experience.

I am aware of what my body needs - active, upright, arms swinging motion. I notice there is a tone to my walk - purposeful, present, confident.  I notice the openness around me, the cleared sidewalks and roads, the clouds are softening, lightening up, revealing a soft blue sky.
