Have you carved out time for reflection this week?

“Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness are right here. Please Help Protect It”

I got the chance to go on a short hike with an high school friend just a few weeks ago and it was incredibly refreshing. Living in LA, I really should be taking the advantage of all the wonderful hikes and mountains around me and get out into the nature- but as we all do- I get sucked into the busy-ness of life and “never” have time to hike.

But that is simply an excuse. As I enter November, in which I’m out of town every single weekend- and I’ve got a million and one things to do- I need to remind myself of the 30 minutes or an hour here and there that I need to carve out for myself. For nature. For reflection. To remind myself that life isn’t always being busy.

The hike, as you can tell, was absolutely gorgeous. It was about a 4 mile round trip hike. My friend and I took about two hours slowly walking, chatting, and even spent about 30 minutes at the waterfall to have a snack and dip our legs into the water.

Are you carving out time for yourself? Or are you constantly feeling drained from the never ending to-do list? If you are feeling drained- more the reason you need to take a quick break. Go walk around the block. Go for a jump at sky zone. Go for a hike.

How do you refresh your mind? I’m always looking for new ideas!
