Get your walk on…

Recently I was reminded how precious life is through a few different events occurring. I was reminded that life is not something that we can live later, but rather something that we seize today and live the moment. If we rather decide to live later and work now we cheat ourselves and others of enjoying the life that we are blessed with.

Nevertheless, in an effort to get back in shape and remind myself how relaxing just wandering aimlessly outside can be well, just what I need, I’ve started wandering 20-30 minutes at night at a nice leisurely pace of about 3 mph.

So far, so good and definitely feeling more relaxed after only a few days – who knows, maybe I’ll be jogging and running soon 🙂

What about you? I’d encourage you to get out and walk, take your music player with you and disconnect for thirty minutes and just let your mind rest for a little while and feel your blood course through your body as you relax and recuperate.

  1. How fun! I just started doing that every night as well! I push the kids, so I tell them it is quiet time and it feels so good to go faster and faster in my own little world. Well, that is assuming I got sleep the night before. And the dogs like it too. It’s a win for everyone. Congrats on finding a way to relax and unwind!

  2. Dan,

    Doesn’t it feel great? It’s a good time of year for walking in DC, too. When I got my first dog 7 years ago I realized how much he got me feeling better walking him every day for 20 minutes. I try to walk as much as possible now.
