Starting your working day with a nature walk

12th November 2020

Recently I managed to miss a bit of a milestone. I’ve been running my business for a whopping ten years. A decade. It sounds like an awfully long time. It’s been challenging and fun. I’ve worked with some lovely people and made a real difference to their businesses and their lives.

I work from home and it’s something that a lot of people are quickly having to adjust to. Something that’s worked for me over the years is starting the day with a walk and  getting out into nature.

Years ago I worked in Manchester and I had a long walk from the train station to the office. That walk kept me active and gave me time to think about what I had to do that day.

Getting back into photography

When you work from home there’s a temptation to get up, have something to eat and get straight to work. I found out pretty quickly that I needed time to myself before getting stuck into my tasks.

Lately I’ve been using my early morning walk to get back into photography. It feels good to combine exercise and creativity. At this time of year the best parts of the day are often first thing in the morning.

It’s been a beautiful Autumn here in Marple with lots of colour and fantastic weather conditions and so I wanted to share some of my photography with you. You can see more of this kind of thing over on my Instagram account.

In these strange times it’s reassuring to get out and see the changing seasons and nature getting on with its work.

If you’re new to working from home try and get a morning walk into your routine. It’ll give you time to reflect, a chance to exercise and who knows maybe some lovely photos?
