I felt like I was walking into a brick wall, over and over and over. All week. There was never a door, just a solid brick wall. So on my lunch break I got in my car….it was humid and sprinkling, so I didn’t want to run. I considered Mall of America for some walking, but was afraid I’d get distracted by shopping.
I found my way to Fort Snelling, I have a state park parking pass from the last time I went to Duluth, and despite working about 3 miles away I hadn’t utilized the Fort Snelling option. So I explored the grounds a bit, parked by the beach and went for a walk. My mind was stuck on unhelpful thoughts, so I turned on a podcast to distract myself. I did end up going back to work, and the afternoon wasn’t perfect, but the break was much needed.
Somedays you can’t escape the madness, but if you get the opportunity, even for a moment, take it.
Lunch breaks…do you take them? What do you during that time?
