Making the Most of It

For those of you that live in Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, or a northern state, you can probably still feel your bones defrosting from these frigid temperatures. With the -40 degree temperatures we have had the last couple of days, all of the precipitation we have been getting just keeps turning to ice.

That all being said, sidewalks are like ice rinks right now, but the dog still needs to be walked! So instead of getting frustrated and maybe not taking the dog out.. we decided to have some fun! Mike and I got all bundled up and instead of our planned walk we took a bit of a 'skate' through the neighbourhood. Rocco was leading us every step of the way.

I felt like that little boy in the Christmas story all bundled up in my snow suit and just had some fun like I was a kid again. It really does help alleviate the stresses of life to just let loose and have some fun. A study in the Psychological Science suggests that holding a smile on one's face during periods of stress may help the heart and just genuinely makes you feel better!

Have you had a kid moment recently?
