I forgot to add to the list of wellness ideas.

  • Take a walk around the neighborhood.

Connection to your local environment helps with your sense of grounding. And whether you’re in your own neighborhood, the neighborhood where you grew up, or some altogether new neighborhood, what better way to walk off some of that Thanksgiving turkey and pumpkin pie, get a chance to have some talk-time with your sister or uncle or friend, and perhaps even play tourist in your own town?

Anticipating tomorrow’s eating frenzy, this morning my boyfriend and I took a pre-turkey walk near our home in San Francisco. Sometimes it’s fun to be a tourist in my own town.
