What are you doing with the time 🕰 in your life?
Are you actually doing the things you want to be doing?
Or are you wasting your time on such things as social media or watching tv 📺?
Did you know that on average people spend at least 30 minutes a day scrolling social media which adds up to over 10,950 minutes per year!!!
And in another study done in the US the average person aged 12 and up watch an average of 4.7 hours of tv per day?!? That is equal to 2 full months a year!!!
Quit wasting your time!
Time is the most valuable resource we have.
Pick up a book, spend quality time with your family or friends, go hiking, listen to a Podcast!
Do something to quit wasting time and focus on LIVING your life!
The beauty of Upper Antelope Canyon never ceases to amaze me. The first time I visited, back in 2006, I virtually had a private tour. These days, the canyon has become so popular that tour groups of 20+ people are filed through one after another all day long. Regardless of how different the experience is today, it’s still jaw-dropping.
Curly Sedge (Caustis flexuosa) doing a happy dance. This species grows exclusively on sandier soils derived from granite or sandstone and it’s strongly curled appearance makes it unmissable in this environment. It is particularly common around Sydney, but it’s range extends as far west as near Dubbo, north into QLD and extends south well into Victoria.
Blotched Hyacinth Orchid (Dipodium variegatum) is a ground orchid which gets its sustenance from parasitism upon fungi, rather than from photosynthesis. For most of the year the plant exists entirely below ground, surviving without sun through the extraction of food from the fungi existing on the roots of surrounding trees, often Eucalytpus sp. Once a year it makes itself known to the outside world, growing a single stem and flowering in blotched cream and maroon from winter to summer. The flowers are then pollinated by native bees and wasps, resulting in seed dispersal, before disappearing underfoot once again. Ahhmazing!
I ran off to the woods for some play time before my workout today. Seeing the earth beneath me always helps center me. But of course I got out of frame on crow pose🙄
Did you wake yo body today?
My bangs always look so goofy upside down but I refuse to pin them back😅
One more Kanawha State Forest post for you. In total, there are nearly 50 miles of public trails for hikers. I love exploring all of these beautiful paths. According to the forest’s superintendent, bikers are the largest group of people in the park now. I haven’t actually tried mountain biking there. Do any of you have experience biking there?
The Shawangunk Ridge Trail joins with the Long Path over this alien-looking terrain. In all my life of hiking, I’ve never seen a trail quite like this. This was largely due to a fire that burned through this area years ago.
