This has been an anxious and difficult week. My brother-in-law died last Thursday after suffering a stroke on Monday while working in Jakarta. My sister flew to Jakarta on Tuesday. So, not only have I been feeling sad about his death but I’ve been concerned about my sister with such a long trip and difficult news that greeted her.
Exercise does help with anxiety but it’s also easy to get caught up in waiting for the phone to ring and let exercise go. Here’s my record (as best I remember–I wasn’t very good at tracking things this week):
Monday–housework and some gardening
Wednesday–about 35 minutes brisk walking, in several smaller walks
Thursday–30 to 35 minutes brisk walking
Friday–lawnmowing (about 30 to 35 minutes)
And that’s it. This weekend I’ve been running errands and doing house chores getting ready to go to England on Wednesday. I’ll be there until the 26th. Hopefully I’ll get some good walks and I’ll try to post at least once.
