These are very difficult times for all of us. The world as we knew it changed suddenly, and many of the day-to-day activities we took for granted (and rarely gave much thought to) disappeared almost instantly. While we navigate these dark uncharted waters together, many of us are finding brightness in new places. With heavy restrictions in place on what we can’t do, we are desperately searching for what we can do.
For many of us, this comes in the form of rediscovering nature and seeking solace in the outdoors. Even you don’t consider yourself the outdoorsy “type,” you may be surprised by what an amazing escape it provides these days, especially if you are working from home. Perhaps your significant other is also working from home, and quiet workspaces are limited. Or you have children at home who need your constant attention and must complete their own work as part of a homeschooling curriculum. Then there’s the endless list of chores; the house doesn’t clean itself and those (constant) meals certainly don’t cook themselves! Needless to say, working from home poses a whole host of unexpected challenges. Have you ever needed an escape MORE?
