Repost. Outdoors Everyday Challenge Day 7

Day 7
Yesterday I wrote a little bit about being inspired to go outside, and I've since thought alot about what inspires me to go out. I've asked friends, and my sister. I've wondered, and I really haven't come up with an answer. I could think of what may not inspire me to go out. If I look outside and it's gray and rainy, I may here my mother say in her English accented voice, "well, that's not very inspiring, hmmm." But inspired to go out. No. It is just a need. An, if I don't come out at some point, my day doesn't feel right, feeling. A bit like an itch that needs to be scratch that grows more demanding as the day goes on. A few times a year I will relish in a pajama day, and feel like I've gotten away with something. But for the most part I do not need inspiration to go outdoors, I just need to put my boots on.
Others however did come up with some outdoors inspirations, here are some things that my friends and family listed as being inspiring to get them outdoors:
Blue skies
Warmish temperatures
A outdoor companion
Their kids.
Their dog

I don't know if this post will help get you into the outdoors mood, and today I do beleive we will need a lot of that as the weather is supposed to be bad.
Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day

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.
