Sometimes when I feel really bad the only way to change my emotion is to leave the space I’m in. If I feel horrible on a bus or train I’ve gotten off and walked around a bit. If I feel horrible in the office I step outside. One night in Boston I left my apartment at 4am to go to a 24 hour Walgreens to walk around because I was hallucinating in my apartment.
There’s something about fresh air that can change everything. One deep breath of fresh air can mean the difference between hours of frustration or a sweet calm that can get me to tomorrow.
The weather is becoming nice enough to be outside again. I always like to take advantage of the sunshine.
