15 Minutes of Not-So-Silent Bliss

22 Thoughts I Have on my Bike Ride to Work
David Marcu

Ah the daily commute. Some people drive. Some people walk. Some people fly (you know, in a private jet). Some people ride their bicycles. I am a part of the bicycle group this summer for my internship because I do not own a car and it only takes about 15 minutes on a bike to get there.

However, taking this ride every weekday in the morning on the way there and in the evening on the way back can have some soothing and calming effects. If you know the route well enough, you can let you mind wander enough that you are deep in thought while also being aware of your surroundings (safety first!).

Here are some thoughts that I have had during those short rides:

Sitting on the Seat that has been in the Sun for Hours

Seeing a Ditch In the Sidewalk that You Can't Avoid

Doing the "Hello" Nod to Passerby


When a Car is Right Behind You


Looking Over Your Shoulder to Assess Your Surroundings


Accidentally Running Into a Trash Can


Looking Strange in a Helmet, but Safety is Important

Trying to Make Up for it by Wearing Sunglasses


When You Have to Jump to Get Over a Curb


LOOK AT THAT NATURE


Thinking About Future Plans


Thinking of a Stranger Future

"The World is so Amazing"


"THERE IS LITTER EVERYWHERE"

"Did I Forget Something?"

Feeling the Breeze

"'Star Wars' is Not Science Fiction..."


"Movie Studios Recreating Things from the 90's is like Textbooks Coming Out with a New Edition to Make More Money"

"What was That? GASP! IT'S RAINING!"

Going Downhill

Going Uphill


Arriving Home

What do you think, friends? What are your thoughts during your daily commute?

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature.
