Loved this Biggest Loser Dazzling Diamonds challenge to get outside. So simple and easy just to get outside at least 5 minutes per day! But it made me conscious to make sure I got outside each day. I am so glad because the weather in Michigan in fall is just beautiful. The weather has been warmer than usual, although finally starting to cool off some. Most days have been sunny, although there were a few rainy days this week. But even in the drizzle, it was nice to be outside and smell the outdoors. One of the things that is nice about being outside is that you awaken all your senses. Obviously there is so much to see and observe. But the sense of hearing is a big part of being outside, as the sounds are so different from the sounds of indoors. You hear the wind or breeze, the bird songs, the leaves rustling, the sounds of animals scurrying through the woods, and insects chirping. I love the fresh smell of the outdoors, the smell of the pines.
Finally, being outside is a chance to just enjoy the environment and be away from the normal daily cares. I think I may adopt this practice every day, just to make sure I get outside every day!
