“Looking up put some breath into my week.
I felt like I had more space, physically and mentally.”

“I spend most of my day inside, sitting at a desk, staring at a computer screen. When I am not staring at my computer screen, I am staring at my phone. It was incredibly calming to look up at the blue sky for a change.”
