Lockdown has been a very mixed blessing - pretty difficult, but with small consolations - the birds are being heard better with no din of traffic, and I’ve noticed that more people are walking around the neighbourhood. I wonder if it’s a mix of being on a schedule that now allows a walk, but also people also realising they need a bit of outdoor time now it’s limited.
One thing I am thinking of is that this could be a time to change things - for those who are not used to exercise, to get into it in one’s alloted portion of every day. If you’re careful and social distance it could maybe help with this strange time in our history. Exercise has proven benefits, not only for physical health, but for mental health.
So - I’d like to start a positive thread, for those who might use this time to change their lives a little, maybe getting more active - from whatever level they’re at. So getting walking, getting running, getting cycling. I’m sure there is some depth of expertise from Wine Soc members. I can offer my experience of 20 years running on and off, cycling and other things.
You really don’t need to be doing that though!! Maybe you just want to walk more, or maybe try running and go from there.
Sometimes it’s nice to share the journey, wherever it starts.
