Patient :Hello. Is it important to go outside everyday? I am constantly reminded that I need to go outside every day. Although,I am also reminded to always close the dishwasher or else it will catch on fire. (silly grandparent logic) I currently attend school through my computer. I often open my windows and I exercise twice daily. It is difficult to go outside every day when I am juggling school work, with extra college classes added mind you. I also cook all of my grandparents meals. They expect me to go outside for two hours. That is precious school work or me time in my opinion. Going outside does not seem to change my mood. It's like they expect me to run around and play with bugs. Sorry. This is mostly for venting purposes. My grandmother has dementia and it is very difficult to keep up with her especially when she doesn't see logic. My grandfather's cognitive capacity has definitely worsened. It's all very frustrating. Thanks.
