That vitamin D.
I've noticed that I tend to have three effective (for me - do not try this at home) strategies for re-centring when I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed/stressed/narky...
a) Go for a run. The faster, harder and longer - the better.
b) Hang for 5pm (universal Mummy wine o'clock, no?) and pour myself a big ol glass of something blanc or verdelho.
c) Grab a book (mag, newspaper, piece of junk mail, anything...) and go sit in the sun.
With options a) & b) inaccessible to me at the moment,
Allellulia and praise the Lord for the beautiful sunshine we've been having over here lately.
The mornings are crisp, dark and fresh.
The evenings are chilly, but cosy indoors.
But the part in between, well, it is just glorious.
Anywhere in the sunshine really is my happy place - and, no doubt, one reason why I look a good five years older than I actually am (okay, maybe ten on a bad day even).
It's no surprise that my ipod (and favourite memories) are bursting with tracks that reference the 'rays' I love.
I'm partial to a bit of 'Chase The Sun', 'Let The Sunshine In', 'Blister in the Sun', 'Sun is Shining' etc. etc....
Sunny days = Good times.
Linking with Fi's 52 Week Project.
Take a snap and join us in the sun!
