Walkies...






Yesterday was a bit of a random day. In fact I usually get Mondays off, and rather enjoy having a long weekend to myself. However, I was called into work at a very stupid hour indeed after very little sleep too! I had really set my mind on going walking with my dad, so after a rather tiring morning at work, we decided to try out our new walking boots (slightly matching, but different colour) and headed towards Bethesda. 

Apparently, walking is meant to be great for stress relief. Lately, I've been feeling a bit stressed. Working hard, waking up early, lacking sleep, my skin and hair reacting horribly due to stress, so I get even more stressed........and breathe...!
At the moment, two of my favourite things to do are walking and taking photographs. Together, they work beautifully, especially in the beautiful countryside here. I must say, other than the general tiredness I felt yesterday due to lack of sleep, the walk really did work wonders. We walked for an hour or so all together, so it was a rather short walk, but the mountain air was extremely refreshing, and the views were just breathtaking. 

Let me know if any of you would be interested in a 'stress' related blog post and how I personally deal with it. I've blogged about it in the past, but I'd really like to focus more on techniques, what you could do to decrease stress levels and what might help along the way!

Anyway, I hope you're all having a lovely week so far!
