I have been having a really heavy heart lately, and I struggled strongly with my anxiety today, so I decided to go hiking for the first time to clear my mind. It was great. It helped me breathe and think about a lot. It calmed me down and kept me at ease. Now that I’ve allowed myself to escape and think, I’m able to handle situations better. I think before this hike, whatever that’s happening now, I would be depressed & in pieces & just horrible. But now that I have this ease in my heart, I can respond better and be more civil. I need to do this routinely. Also, it has made me tired, so it was nothing but great!
