Nurturing Activities

Posted by Hello
After dinner last night, my family and I went for a walk on our city's walking bridge (pictured) and then tossed a Frisbee at a local park. The weather was perfect, and the bridge and park had many happy faces as families and friends spent the evening relaxing and playing together, making the whole evening seem almost surreal. While there was effort exerted in walking and throwing a Frisbee, we all felt surprisingly more refreshed than if we had spent the evening in front of the TV. While watching TV actually burns fewer calories than sleep (amazing, isn't it?), I wonder if perhaps it has an effect of lowering our zest for life as I have never got up from watching TV feeling "refreshed."
