How lucky I am to live in East Tennessee in the Springtime!

The forsythias are so vibrant and the dogwoods and other blooming trees are starting to bloom as well.

This time of renewal beckons us to get out and work in our yards but also to take walks, bike rides and go to the park. It is such a short time that God shares these beauties with us - wherever you are in the season of spring - get outside and get active! Enjoy this gift!

Walking 30-40 minutes every evening after dinner is such a great habit for your body! Think of it as giving yourself a close-up look at the beauty of spring.     
 "Exercise: Exercise can help decrease feelings of anxiety and can give you a sense of well-being. It boosts the oxygen and blood flow to the brain helping it to relax regularly. It also enhances well-being through the release of endorphins, the brain's feel-good chemicals. Research shows that as little as 30 minutes of exercise three to five times a week can provide significant anxiety relief."
