Did you know this Saturday, March 30th is “Take a Walk in the Park Day”? Sounds like a lovely idea, particularly if you live in an area where the flowers are beginning to bloom and the birds are chirping. Making the time to walk through a park certainly hadn’t been something on my list of “must-do” for this weekend. But maybe it should.
Walking in the park for just 30 minutes has many health benefits such as burning calories, lowering blood pressure, reducing stress, and improving mood. Walking, especially in a pretty park or on a nature trail, leads to an overall feeling of happiness, mental clarity and energy. When I feel better about myself I make better choices in every aspect of my life.
Feeling happy and energetic should be a daily goal. Now that spring has arrived, I’m going to make getting outdoors a priority. When that’s not feasible, I want to do something that achieves some of the same benefits as a walk outside.
