:: spend 15 minutes outside everyday ::
Already this has made a huge shift in my days, in the way it feels to be in my body. Either in the last cold minutes of light around sunset, or going out for hikes as a family, I've made a point to step outside each day. Most often with this sweet boy, who delights so much on being outside, who wants nothing more than to play, no matter the weather. I have so much to learn from him.
Filling the dog's dish, taking a sock to the hamper, checking a phone message: so many little nagging tasks that are so small they're almost too easy to ignore. One of the ways I want to show up for my life is by not ignoring the seemingly insignificant little things, but instead to tend, right away, to what is in front of me, and thus prevent the small nagging tasks from turning into an insurmountable pile.
Whether it's blogging or doing some timed writing exercise, every day, I want to write for ten minutes, outside of the clear-my-head morning-pages style of journaling that I do daily. This year I want to focus on writing as craft, and this is my commitment to that process.
What are some of the small things you're doing to change your life in a big way? I'm really curious to know.
