Over the weekend we took a day trip to New Melones Lake, located in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Foothills just outside of the cute little town of Angels Camp. The restrictions due to Covid-19 have fostered more road trips, local getaways and for us going to different lakes every chance we get, while staying within our social bubble. It’s no secret that getting outside, being in nature and adding some exercising has numerous benefits for our mental health. When I engage in these activities I find myself in a better mood, more patient with my children, I sleep better and honestly I just have a better outlook and perspective on small and big things in my life. So get outside….Doesn’t have to be fancy, doesn’t have to be for a long time, and you don’t have to overthink it!
