I suffer with very bad anxiety and phobias and struggle to go places that are busy with people. I get anxious about the thought of germs and feel more anxious inside in busy places.
We are lucky where we live that we don’t get very extreme weather and are still able to go out to explore.
I find being outside in the fresh air helps my anxiety and provides a good distraction as well as exercise.
My son loves being outside ( not as much as gaming) but he loves to explore. For Christmas he received a metal detector this weekend was spent looking for treasure to his sadness we didn’t find any. We can’t wait to take it to the beach once spring arrives and we head to our holiday lodge.
There’s so great local parks to explore local to us we are very lucky.
Here’s some pictures from our walk
The rest of the weekend has been spent baking banana bread and making soup.
Ready for the week back to work and homeschool activities.
