The weather in Taipei has been spectacular the past few weeks, and I have been doing my best to make the most of it.
I know the science and why it works, but getting out and walking in the sunshine truly is good for the soul.
Yes, Vitamin D from the sun makes you feel good. And yes, exercise releases endorphins that make you feel great. And absolutely, fresh air is brilliant (having lived in Delhi and China, I have total appreciation for it!). But it’s also the sights you see, the strangers that greet you along the way, and the friends you run into on the street corner.
I have a new regime, especially now it’s cooler. My husband usually drops the girls at the school gate on the way to work. But now I go too, I get a bit of social interaction at school as I take them into class and then I get a fantastic walk home along the river (or creek, depending on where you’re from).
And let’s face it, a happy mum = happy kids!
What opportunities can you take to get some outside time? Perhap you can combine it with some exercise? Tell me how you fit it into your day.
