Walking off the stress and anxiety


We are most fortunate to live in an apartment building with a very nice green space behind it. Like most of us dealing with the fallout from Covid-19 I have been anxious and stressed at times. The unknowns can be challenging, to say the least. So, I decided enough was enough and I had to do something positive to deal with it. I’m afraid I am not a terribly active person. I figure my job at the library gives me lots of physical activity with lots of walking back and forth and completing various tasks. But, with the virus came the news that the library would be closed for the time being so I have been at home basically 24/7 with only trips to the grocery stop for necessities and the trips to the hospital for hubby’s dialysis treatments. It is still winter here in Alberta, although the calendar says differently. Luckily the sun has been shining even while cold northern breezes still blow. Here are a few photos of the walkway around the green space.

Although this isn’t the best photograph (it was still twilight when I entered the still snow covered green space. It was a nice invigorating evening walk.
The municipality has been doing a stellar job at keeping the pathway cleared for people who walk their dogs here or families stroll with their little ones. I am so grateful for this space.

Although the calendar says it’s spring winter hangs on longer in the North. I am grateful for sunny days, even if it is still a bit nippy outside.

Hope this finds you all healthy and finding ways to handle the inevitable stress. Stay well my friends and stay safe.
