Spend Some Time Outdoors Everyday – Day 3 – 31 Ways To Overcome Burnout
Rain, hail or shine, get out into the fresh air!
Connect with the power of Mother Nature to refuel your engine.
So much time is spent indoors working, cleaning, cooking, watching TV, checking Facebook, reading emails.

If I lived closer I would walk along the beach everyday!
What I can do unless it is absolutely pouring, is make a coffee as soon as I get home from work and spend 10 minutes sitting outside on a bench seat in the backyard, getting a little sunshine and relaxing. I have to fight hard to not take my phone or iPad out there and do a social media check!
There are so many things you can do that take 5 minutes or 5 hours. Just do something outdoors enjoying a little sun that will give you a Vitamin D boost, which is great for elevating your mood.
