This weeks experiment was to spend some time in a forest every day for four days.

This is pretty easy for me as I live in a small village close to fields and trees ... and I probably go walking every day without fail that would involve some fields or a few trees.
I imagine this experiment not being so easy for the city dwellling Wake Uppers.

When I do venture in a more remote forest my imagination does go a little crazy. I imagine a werewolf or a vampire might be stalking me in the style of Twilight. This is all part of the escapism from everyday life and I chuckle to myself as my sensible side asks me ' how old am I?'

So, I thought I would turn this experiment on its head this week and spend some time in a wide open space. I am lucky to work ten minutes away from this beauty. Ted and I headed off on our mini adventure. So accessible to me but often forgotten in the day to day business of living.

I swear my dog Ted was smiling as he raced in and out of the heather disturbing wildlife. My eyes felt truly nourished and I was able to take some deep breaths in a week which has not been great. Once again from this experiment I am awed by the beauty and healing properties of nature.

I'm a single parent of ONE lovely lanky teenager.. I live in deepest rural Wales . My 'proper' job is in marketing and events but I am also a trained reflexologist, masseur and reiki giver (go figure!) I also look after my Mum who is in her late 80's, my dog Ted, my cat Black and my hens and dream is to have a small holding and offer people holidays in my teepee and maybe the odd therapy as you can see I am a mass of contradictions.... I like to walk, do yoga, eat salad and visit new places but I also like to drive fast, Feast ice lollies, vodka on Friday's with friends(, which leads to dancing in my kitchen) my coffee , and staying up late... I can be outgoing but also extremely shy so like the rest of you I am still trying to figure it out one day at a time...

ha, ha, I love your escapism of being stalked by a werewolf or a vampire. When I'm in forests I always imagine coming face to face with a huge lion which escaped from a safari park or a leopard. Escapism is great or as Tony the Tiger used to say, "GGGGGGGGGGGGreat!"
