A Mental Health Walk

Husband rarely goes away for work, but once a year he attends a conference with his firm. This year he used our car, which isn't a big deal as the weather was nice and I happily walked everywhere with the kids (he was only gone for 1 1/2 days). But the girl was a bit of a nightmare on Saturday. And when Husband arrived home at 3.30pm, I was happy to see him. But I knew I also needed some time alone. So I grabbed the car at 3.35pm and went for a mental health walk in Richmond Park.

It probably sounds over dramatic to say that I needed mental health time. But sometimes, as parents, we need some time alone. And sneaking a chocolate bar in the kitchen cupboards isn't always enough. And there's nothing like a little exercise and fresh air to help clear one's mind and lift one's spirits.

  1. Dramatic language, but I know where you are coming from. I really should get better at getting away for more walks and the like and I have vowed to take my health more seriously and do more such thinkgs. Thanks for the reminder! #MySundayPhoto

  2. Those stags are magnificent! I know exactly what you mean. I can't bear to be stuck in the house, ever. When my daughter was off school ill for a few weeks, the first thing I did when my husband or boys got home was take myself off for a walk. It was dark, but I needed the exercise and fresh air to keep myself sane.

  3. With you all the way on this one, sometimes you just need some fresh air to clear your mind. I went to Richmond Park for the first time the other week - what a gorgeous place in amongst all of the busyness! #MySundayPhoto

  4. Your walk looks amazing, what a pick me up! I really miss being able to just go out and walk alone, it really does make you feel refreshed and more able to cope with the daily toil. #mysundayphoto

  5. I agree. Me time is so important. I'm lucky that I get quite a bit relatively, because N likes spending so much time on the farm. But I don't always go out.
