Walk Your Way to the Goal of Happiness!Thinking about getting out and walking as a form of exercise? Walking is one of the most relaxing forms of low-impact exercises that brings us not only good health, but also time to socialize with the neighbors or simply spend some quality "alone time." But as with all effective endeavors, walking is more useful when it''s done as part of a meaningful program. This doesn''t suggest that walking can''t be fun. We simply believe that you would enjoy your plight and reap the benefits of walking more if it were a path toward some sort of goal.
What kind of goal?
Aside from the obvious benefits like exercising or socializing with other walkers, how about the goal of simply feeling good? We bet you can recall a time in your childhood when walking or running made you feel just fantastic. As a child, walking might have made you feel ''free'' or maybe it gave you an exclusive claim to be a happy-go-lucky kid. We''ll even bet you can remember when you had not a care in the world except getting home from walking in time for supper or your favorite television show. And if you took your shoes off, you might have taken a private delight in the way the grass or sand felt on your bare feet as you stretched your legs in proud, feel-good strides.
As an adult, we often feel these days are gone and reserved for the next generation, but it doesn''t have to be. You too, can relive those happy feelings you had as a carefree child by simply walking and enjoying the tingling feelings that your body sends you - it just feels plain GOOD to be enjoying life actively! Few things can beat a stroll down the beach or through the woods.
Get Happy. Go for a Walk.
