Did you know? It only takes two to four hours a week to achieve a general improvement to your health. Why not give cycling around the park a try?
Low impact – it causes less strain and injuries than most other forms of exercise.
A good muscle workout – cycling uses all of the major muscle groups as you pedal.
Easy – unlike some other sports, cycling does not require high levels of physical skill. Most people know how to ride a bike and, once you learn, you don’t forget.
Good for strength and stamina – cycling increases stamina, strength and aerobic fitness.
As intense as you want – cycling can be done at very low intensity to begin with, if recovering from injury or illness, but can be built up to a demanding physical workout.
A fun way to get fit – the adventure and buzz you get from coasting down hills and being outdoors means you are more likely to continue to cycle regularly, compared to other physical activities that keep you indoors or require special times or places.

Perfect moody weather for some exploring of Killarney National Park today. Came across this nice little spot while driving up towards Ladies View. 🌳

After seeing most of Ireland’s coastline it was time for some hiking. From this viewpoint you can see the mountain ranges of #Killarney National Park on one side and the lakes and Ireland’s adventure capital, Killarney, on the other side. So stunning what do you think?

Who knows what this piece of furniture is called in Ireland?
My mother grew up in a house like this. Where all the kitchenware was stored and displayed like this. Where jackets were thrown over beds at night for warmth. Where drinking water was drawn from a well. And a potty was kept under the bed at night. Bread was baked every day. And if a child was sick a chicken was killed and cooked for nutrition. The kids played with coloured glass bottles as toys. And spoke regularly about fairies and ghosts.
It’s hard to believe how recent that Ireland was. -

Ces paysages qui me faisaient rêver sur google 🤣 enfin je les ai vu en vrai!! Bon les photos rendent pas aussi bien que celles de google ni que la réalité mais je vous en partage une petite partie... ☺️⛰ #killarneynationalpark#blackvalley#ireland
Leaving Ireland finally feeling more like me again. Of course all of the puppy love and having something to take care of greatly contributed to my mental health, but I also believe a large portion of that healing is from spending less time on my phone.
It’s wild how healing tech-less connection & conversations can be. This isn’t new information but it was my first hiatus and my outlook on how I spend my time online is impacted.
