Welcome back! It’s the dead of winter and we are back at school and work. Perhaps many of you are feeling the strain of the forty hour work week or a fourteen hour course load. When you are putting out lots of energy it is important to eat well and rest well.
What do you like to do to unwind? I like to take my dog Leo on a nice long walk through the neighborhoods of Elizabeth and Eastover. Tree lined avenues and quiet evening air do my soul good. Long walks also keep my little pooch happy and fit.
I also like to watch evening specials on PBS such as the ever popular Downton Abbey. If you haven’t heard of Downton Abbey I encourage you to tune in and check it out! Downton Abbey is a Primetime Emmy Award winning series shown on PBS on Sunday evenings. Downton Abbey is set at the turn of the century just as women were getting the right to vote and the automobile was becoming popular. The series follows an aristocratic family in England as they deal with the social and economic challenges of modern life. Colorful period costumes, pleasant British accents, and historic buildings make this a nice viewing experience. Downton Abbey is an excellent escape. There is nothing better than some delicious snacks and a PBS special!
I hope you all find your outlet and do not hesitate to indulge yourselves in something pleasant after you have left the workday behind.
