With the snow almost totally melted, more than anything, I’m looking forward to walks/hikes in and around the city. It’s always been important to me to make sure I fill my days with things that help me get outside of my head, because I am serious a over-thinker. I think things to death and often get lost in my thoughts, which can be positive, but it can also be quite negative. So knowing this about myself, I try to do things that help me leave my mind for a bit. This is usually something creative, like dancing, taking pictures, writing…but hiking is also a positive outlet for me. I’ll admit, I don’t like walking that much if it is to get a specific destination, but if I’m walking just for the sake of walking, I love it.
On this particular day, Ryan and I had planned to head to High Park (the best park in Toronto, imo) for a walk in the woods, but it was rainy and muddy and just not the ideal day for a leisurely stroll, so after brunch we headed to Dufferin Grove (a park close to our house) to snap some pictures and at the very least, breathe in fresh air for a little bit. I’m quite looking forward to summer in my new neighbourhood. I’ve never lived this close to a park, so I’m really hoping I’ll take advantage of it’s close proximity come the warmer days.
What about you guys, are you also over-thinkers? What helps you get out of your mind, and live in the present?
