Yesterday was a particularly long day at work. Nothing bad, maybe just the mid-week hump day nature of it all. When I got home, I felt less than great. So, after quick hellos to the family, I hopped on the bike and rode up to the Observatory. The ride in total was only about an hour long, but the amount of good it did to lift my energy levels was immeasurable. Sometimes it’s easy to forget how a little bit of fresh air can do so much to restore the spirit. I will remind myself of this next time I feel I’m in the doldrums, and immediately hop on the bike.
