Happy Friday! Hope you all have had a good week. Mine started off kind of blah because I’m feeling the effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder and the early part of the week was especially cold and grey and I just hunkered down inside and didn’t get any fresh air or exercise and wah wah wah. But then it got up to like a balmy 28 degrees on Wednesday and has stayed around there since then, so I’ve made a point to get out and walk as much as I can and that helps. I don’t have a fitbit, but my iPhone (and your iPhone, too, if you have one) monitors my steps every day and I try to get close to 10,000 steps (roughly 5 miles), which I managed to do the last few days. It really makes a difference in my mental (and, of course, physical, well-being). But so does the sunshine and I don’t have a whole lot of control about when I get my dose of that.
Anyway, besides a little sun and exercise in the second half of this week, I also got to see Louis C.K. at Madison Square Garden Wednesday night with Drew and that was so much fun. I love that guy (well, both of those guys). And how impressive that he sold out MSG not just one night but three nights. That’s huge. Also huge was the bag of Cracker Jacks I ate at the show. But, damn, I had forgotten how amazing Cracker Jacks are. Also amazing: taking advantage of living in a big city and seeing things like Louis C.K. perform and catching a Broadway show and eating some great meals out and walking, walking, walking (and never running out of stuff to see). I didn’t really make resolutions, but now I kind of want to make a belated one to do at least one cultural event/activity every month because it also makes a difference in my mental well-being.
Anyway, how was your week? Do you have any weekend plans? Are you doing anything special/different to help you get through the winter?
