Go For A Walk And Feel Good
I like walking every day. I started over a year ago and walk a little over two miles nearly every day. It's not a whole lot but it does help your body feel good. I also feel like I have more energy. My husband started walking after he retired so I decided to join him. Now I sometimes go alone or with him. At first I was really out of shape. I didn't know if I could make it the whole way. In the beginning I walked more slowly but now it takes me about 40 minutes to walk 2.2 miles. I enjoy the outdoors and clearing my mind. You notice little things, like squirrels climbing trees and scampering around, birds chirping, and sometimes you even find a lucky penny lying on the ground. One time I had a dog run up to me but the owner was right after it. There always seems to be dogs barking somewhere but are usually tied up or looking from a window in a house. One time I was going for a walk and it started raining. By the time I got home I was drenched! So from now on if it looks like rain I take an umbrella or don't go at all. Another time I was walking and saw a pickup run into a car. You never know what you are going to see when you go for a walk!
