Getting Out of the House

If you work outside the home, you may not understand how simply
going out helps me psychologically!

I went to our MS Self Help Group meeting....
when I wanted to stay at home, for no reason.

However, I think if I do not get out of the house....
I will become homebound when
I am blessed to have a choice physically to go or stay at home.

I made myself to go since I do enjoy the meetings
and Just getting out.....seeing other people 
makes me feel better.

Maybe we are meant to be social creatures!

So glad you are still able to get out. So true, we do need to get out and enjoy the beauty of God's creation along with the friendships and support He brings along our path. Thank you for the reminder. By His Grace, Michele

I've actually noticed it helps my boys too. If they're having a bad morning and we go out to do something (even if it's just going to the grocery store) it breaks up the bad moods.

Getting out of the house is really important to keep one's sanity! I often make myself go out as well, but today it's -14 outside, so I am staying in!

I could quite easily become a hermit, if my friends and family would let me.

Going out every day for a while is necessary. It refreshes & relaxes mind & body. It rejuvenates you, gives you more energy, greater zeal & enthusiasm. It makes you want to live .

That is so true. I remember feeling as though I were housebound when I had a new baby, and my husband was deployed. Just taking the baby in a stroller for a five minute walk around the block did wonders.

Even now, if I've been cooped up studying all morning, I'll change the scenery and study at the library for an hour, which helps that "locked up" feeling.

While I do enjoy lots of alone time, there are times that getting out is an absolute necessity.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Yeah, "cabin fever" is no fun! Get out and mingle!

Becky Jane said...

I understand you completely! I look forward to just going grocery shopping with my husband...anything to get out and about! Except I do NOT like being out when it's dark and cold...brrrr

Ginny said...

I'm so glad you went! Phil and I were just talking about this yesterday. We all seem to be a mixture of liking to stay inside and nest, but then get cabin fever after awhile and need to get out. I knew someone who couldn't wait to go places, and always got there way early. Then once she was there, she couldn't wait to leave and go home. I do think we need to make ourselves go out and move, while we still can and so we won't lose it. I love this cute picture!!!

You have the right idea. I too have to remind myself to get out and not become homebound.

absolutely great to socialize, and important in our lives. i know two men who are hermits and live alone and never leave home, they are miserable and not doing well. so happy you now have your little go mobile to keep you out and about

The Elephant's Child said...

Getting out is something I have to push myself to do. I do try, even if it is just a wobble around the garden.

My Journey With Candida said...

When it gets cold outside, I like to stay home. My Hubs just about has to drag me out.

Glad you got out and enjoyed yourself.

Debbie said...

I actually DO believe we're meant to be social creatures. God saw that right away and determined it wasn't good for man to be alone/solitary.

Good for you for getting out when you could! I find that I really need just to get out too.

I don't know if I am convinced of that one. I enjoy my own company. Ha!!

ya being in the house too much will makes us think of a lot of no good things. Its good to be out of the house

Sarah (Nikki) said...

I sometimes fight going out but always feel great when I say yes to invites. It's good to get out and hang with others.

Rachel Cotterill said...

I understand - sometimes I don't want to go out of the house (especially in winter), but I feel much better when I just get on with it.

DUTA said...

Going out is a Must. It doesn't neccessarily mean meeting other people, as those can sometimes irritate you with their words or behavior.

Going out to contemplate Nature and its wonders brings you health and serenity.

Clare said...

I am very much the same and have to force myself at times to get out, then I feel so much better.
We were not designed to be alone. :)
