My COVID-19 “work” commute to the study is 3m from where I sleep, but it takes me 45 min to get there!
After listening to Oprah and Deepak Chopra’s meditation (aptly themed “Hope in Uncertain Times”), I exercise my new mantra and my not-so-new body by walking to work – the long way!
I now know every inch of footpath within a 4-5 km radius of my abode. I can chat to my hubby about what’s for dinner (he joins me going “to” work) and my neighbour about what her hubby’s cooking for dinner (she joins me coming home “from” work).
It’s great to be near nature, discovering local parks, listening to noisy birds and admiring the streetscapes of my neighbourhood. Just after Easter, I even found a cute rabbit.
On the weekends, I still need to do my “work” commute! If I don’t, I feel like something is missing.
