I love going on walks. Back when my children could fit in a stroller, I loved to take them out and walk all over the place. When we were in Germany, during our first two deployments, I walked everywhere.
Just getting out for a bit, was helpful. But beyond on, the walks helped with my wellness and allowed me to get into shape. They helped with my anxiety and allowed me to really see Germany in a different light, not just from the windows of a car.
Walking allowed me to be out in nature, and to take a breather when life got stressful. And military life did quite stressful during those years. My husband ended up deploying for 15 months, with a year home, and then off for another year-long deployment. I had a new baby, that soon grew to a toddler as well as a young toddler that grew into a preschooler.
I look back on those years and know that the walking saved me. And in the moment, I didn’t even realize how helpful the walking really was. I didn’t even realize how much I was helping myself with my daily walks.
Wellness is so important to focus on during our military spouse life. Whether it is mental, physical, or emotional. This life can be filled with twists and turns, and being able to make time for ourselves is so important. Self-care, and taking care of our own bodies is so very important.
