Things I Love About Morning Walks
- It is quiet!
Aah! Peace and quiet! So rare! Some folks are still sleeping when we are walking. What a shame. And the folks that are out at the same time as you, have respect for morning tranquility. A day should start quietly!
- You may see an animal or something special
Once in a while, you will stumble upon an animal. It is rare, but when it happens, it is awesome (until the dog dashes off after one)!
- Fresh air, no trafficNo loud cars. No exhaust fumes. Just fresh air!
- Starts my day off right with exercise!
Ok kids. I hate exercise. I hate gyms. SO walking is ideal for me. I get to see things and trick myself into exercising!
- Clears my head
No phone or emails? No dinging of text messages? No one around to talk to you? That means a nice, clear head with no distractions. Some of my best writing comes from a clear head! Too bad I can’t write and walk at the same time.
When winter hits, I try and concentrate on warmer days! I shot this photograph at Blithewold Mansion years ago! I enjoy the way the light was sprinkled over the flowers! If you are in the area, please do visit! It is lovely!
I regret not making a hashtag for this on my Instagram. I am curious how many times I have photographed this spot at the local park. That isn’t including all the photos I have snapped of it prior to smartphones!
