The power of a morning walk
In the past I have blogged about how wonderful walking is. I continue to be amazed by how much walking helps my mental, physical, and emotional well being. In short, it sets the tone of my day and/or makes my day better if it wasn't on the right track to begin with. I love walking because when I hit those moments where I feel like I have very little to give, I know that I can (at minimum) put on my shoes and leave my condo for just a bit.
This morning I woke up and my body was craving a walk. It was an overcast morning, around 60 degrees, with few cars or people passing by. Everything surrounding me felt so quiet and peaceful.
As I walked through the neighborhood with Lucy (and my soy latte, of course :), I instantly felt a sense of calm. I felt a positive energy surrounding me and was thankful that I started my day with a walk.
