Walking has always been my preferred form of exercise. I find it such an enjoyable activity that I don’t even think of it as exercise. I am so fortunate to live surrounded by trees, water and mountains, where I can take several daily ‘forest baths’ with my husband and dogs.
No matter where you live, though, walking daily has immense benefits, as the first resource I share below so eloquently describes. It’s a fantastic way to have a meeting with someone, much more pleasant and productive than sitting at a conference table. I highly recommend doing it without a smartphone.
My second resource below is a resource where I learned about someone I had never heard of, a woman who called herself “Peace Pilgrim,” who walked across the U.S. for 28 years, carrying a message of peace for anyone who would listen. You can even get a copy of a book about her for free here.
Finally, if trying a walking meditation appeals to you, see my third resource below.
As I write, many robins are flying around and landing outside my window in the late winter sunshine. The days are getting longer, and spring will be here soon!
