Before the temperatures get icy and send you cuddling up in front of a cozy fire, consider spending your last few weekends exploring the outdoors.
Walk by the water, around your house, through the fields , the woods, or stroll through a park in the city. The fresh air will clear your thoughts and give you a little extra energy as the days start to get shorter and grayer.
Convince a friend to go with you on your lunch break, or on a longer hike over the weekend. You can take something warm to drink and bundle up in a coat from Goodwill.
You might be surprised that Goodwill has such a wide selection of warm coats from vintage to North Face - all for around $10! You might get lucky with hiking boats or sneakers, too. They have hats, gloves, socks, mittens, and leg warmers to keep out the chill. Plus you can find leggings and athletic wear, backpacks and purses. You’ll always find a deal at Goodwill while supporting numerous initiatives that bring jobs and valuable job training to those in the community who need it.
So, try walking along a new path, or going to an area you’ve never been before. The change of scenery might spark your imagination. If you walk by yourself you may even meet someone new along the way! Keep warm and get out there!
