So this Monday started out in the best way possible, with a little weekly planning and then a run in the sun. I have plenty of work to get done today so I was a little hesitant at first. But then I remembered creativity is unleashed with adrenaline and fresh air. At least for me. So I dressed warm and went out into the sunshine. And I’m glad I did!
The cold air against my face and my thighs made me shiver at first. But when I had been running for 5 minutes I was warm and the air I breathed was cold and fresh. A couple of years ago I hated running and went out maybe 2 or 3 times in a year, always during summer. Now I love running, and especially in winter. Dressing warm and getting all sweaty while the air is cold is addictive!
I ran 6 km in around 50 minutes, including about a hundred short stops for pictures. It’s so beautiful when the sun is shining I just can’t resist. I ran from us, down to the river and then along the river all the way to Sandviken and back home. When I came inside I showered and started working. My creativity and productivity was through the roof! I completed task after task and even managed to make a delicious smoothie and take pictures of it for a job I’m doing. CHECK on this Monday! 🙂
What do you do when you need to boost your creativity? ♡
I think I found the best clothes for winter running as well! Warm but not too warm.
