Have any writers out there found some inspiration from getting outdoors? Now that I live in the mountains, I find there are many scenic places to stop and pull out a pencil and notebook ( as I always have one on hand). But sometimes, it’s just about carving out time to write and soak in some rays.

This past week was busy, so I took about twenty minutes to go for a walk around the hospital on my lunch break. The walk cleared my head and I got to put some thoughts down on paper. It was so refreshing, I found myself missing it the next day. So now I am trying to incorporate a Vitamin D/writing break three days a week.

We’ll see how it goes. Any of you have similar goals?

Below are some pictures my lunch breaks!

~ Even if you aren’t writing, I hope you all take some time for yourselves to get outside for  mental refresher !!

    I love to get outside and write. A lot of times I’ll go on a walk first, and it increases my creativity.

    1. That’s a great idea! I feel most at peace sitting outside with the birds and sunshine. Opens my mind to write. Thanks for sharing that!!!
