Stretching

In addition to relieving cramped and confined muscles and ligaments, stretching can also adjust your attitude. When waking from sleep stretching is one of the major components to waking up and becoming enthused about the coming day. After sitting for long periods of time, either being bored or concentrating hard, nothing feels better than a good stretch. And if you happen to be feeling just a bit down or powerless an enthusiastic stretch with your arms up and out and your back arched can lift your mood and induce a feeling of power and winning at life. If you need to feel a bit more aggressive or assertive and let people know you are in full charge of yourself, put your hands on your hips, arch your back, and put a confident look on your face. These simple things involving the body can really make a difference to how your day, or the rest of your day, will evolve. When the body feels good and feels relaxed, the mind can stretch as well. A few deep breaths also encourages blood flow and oxygen intake that will revitalize the brain and allow positive moods to pervade you. Isn’t it good to find an easy way to revitalize yourself

I've been struck many times by the thoughts that run through my head when I'm outdoors and contemplating nothing in particular. The thoughts can be profound or silly, sad or joyful, relevant or not. But they're always there. And with just a bit of concentration they can lead to the most astonishing places and on the most convoluted trails. Exploring those vagaries and jigs and jogs is fun. I'm attempting to find more of these trails to see if they lead anywhere or nowhere, because even nowhere is somewhere. The bits and pieces of the outdoors help to make the indoors survivable. Photos help bring the outdoors in and remind me of many of the thoughts I had while still outside, a very valuable tool they are, too.
