I don’t know what it is about going for a walk that is amazing, but they just make me feel so good no matter what mood I’ve been in that day. Actually, no that’s a lie…I know exactly what it is.
Putting aside the fact that yes, exercise is good for you (I know, who knew right?), that’s not the reason that makes me put on my walking shoes on a daily basis. I love the fresh air, especially after being inside at work all day. And as the chillier months come, it’s so invigorating to get the blood pumping and pounding the pavement.
But most of all, it’s the thinking time that I enjoy. An hour just on my lonesome, with some music in my ears. Hey, I might not do any thinking at all. Many a walk has been had where I look back and wonder where the time went. But I’ve also had some major epiphanies on my walks, whether it’s been work, study, life in general, or even what to do with this little blog (I decided to write this post on a walk, spooky). I’ve even spent them asking myself, Do I really need to buy that Samantha? (yes, the answer is always yes).
So I implore you, If you’re feeling a bit meh, or if you just want some time to yourself, take a walk. And none of this pesky treadmill business. I’ve tried that and it just doesn’t cut it compared to good ol’ mother nature.
It will do wonders for your spirit.
