i try and get out every day if i can. i find if i don’t, i will spend longer and longer indoors and find it increasingly harder to find the mental strength to go out again. i know that just going to the shops is nothing for most people – something you don’t even give a passing thought to – but for some it’s quite a struggle!
as i said, if i can get out once a day it really does help, and in multiple ways. most of the time i just go for a five minute walk up and down my road, or a half hour walk in the alleys near my house – plenty of them! i prefer the latter because it’s much more private. i try and take my camera with me as often as i can too as i often see things that get my attention for whatever reason.
getting out, away from the house, away from a busy head to clear my thoughts, to get inspired and to get some fresh air. it makes a world of difference. i absolutely love taking photos and it makes me so happy. seeing how much i’ve improved from just a couple of years ago makes me happy too, and proud of myself. here’s to hoping in a couple years i’ll be even better and can push myself further with it.
