Beyond the Trees

Middle of the week grind

One thing I will say about the Covid Crisis is since I have been working from home I have had a lot of opportunities to get outside. Not going to be a long post today but what I will say is if you can go somewhere and see something new if possible. As individuals with Anxiety 2020 has been one hell of a year. For me I’m hanging in there pretty well, I hope you are well. Today I’m heading to the spot below.

I’ve visited here before it’s about 8 miles from my house. I live somewhere in the middle of New England and I have all sorts of parks near me which is great. Getting outside and getting away from screens is like an expresso shot for your soul. Ya I love being online, not going to lie about that. However being online nearly 24/7 can be draining. It’s a constant stream of negativity it’s like everyone is at each other’s throats.

So I’m taking a quick break and going outside today, see if I can find a waterfall and let the noise of dropping water consume me. I find it pretty relaxing, minimally it’s all I can think about as it’s pretty loud, LOL. Is your anxiety flaring up today? Go back to nature you won’t regret it!

Interested in another post about getting outside? Check out my post here.

Find a little bit of peace: Vol II.

Many things are closed down. The gym, stores, banks, on and on. Your immediate outside surroundings are not. It’s time to go out and find a little bit of peace. Below is a short video of yet another place I found near me.

I live in New England and we have miles and miles of stone fences, old bridges, dams you name it. Its very quiet as well, for the most part…. As you will hear a truck blows its horn at me. I am guessing he was happy to see people out and about.

Is there a little bit of peace near you?

Find a little bit of peace

Not a long post today. I went outside and drove to a park near me. There was hardly anyone there. It was great, I just needed to get out and be by myself for a while. I stumbled onto this waterfall. I stared at it and listened to it for about 15 min.

The noise was loud enough to remove other thoughts from my mind. It was a great distraction and a little bit of peace in a stressful time. Get out there and find your little slice of peace.

Saturday Quick Post

Hello readers !

It’s fall in my world and its a glorious day out today! As you may or may not know I get up at between 4:30 AM and 6:00 AM. I know that’s REALLY early but i get a lot done in the morning, it serves me well.

So I got some time today to get outside, I live in a pretty rural area in the New England Region, U.S.A. Many of my readers aren’t from the U.S. here is a map of that region.

I am located, somewhere in the middle 🙂

So it’s fall and its spectacular. On my walk I got this photo.

Look at the reflection…

I hope your morning was as good as mine !
