Go For A Daily Walk
posted: Nov. 01, 2023.
Let's talk about an accessible and practical tool to do this. It's the first thing on my calendar every day and something I love during the spring, fall, and winter here in Arizona. Yes, it's simple: go for a walk.
Going for a walk offers many physical and mental health benefits that can help you shift your focus from your thoughts and back into your body. On a physical level, walking is excellent for cardiovascular health, as it increases your heart rate and improves circulation, reducing the risk of heart disease. It also aids in weight management and can contribute to stronger muscles and joints without putting excessive strain on them.
Mentally, walking can reduce stress and anxiety by releasing endorphins, which are natural mood boosters. It can improve your mood and alleviate feelings of depression, making it a valuable tool for emotional well-being. Regular walking can also enhance your cognitive function and memory.
Walking connects you to the environment. Being outdoors, breathing in fresh air, and observing the world around you can be invigorating and alleviate feelings of being cooped up. It also provides an opportunity for mindfulness, helping you stay grounded in the present moment.
Socially, walking can promote interaction and connection with others if you choose to walk with a friend or in a group. A walking routine can structure your day, breaking up monotonous routines and reducing excessive screen time.
Walking encourages a connection between your mind and body. You become more aware of your physical sensations, breathing, and posture, fostering mindfulness and a more profound sense of self. It can also be an outlet for your emotions, enabling you to process your feelings and healthily release stress. Going for a walk is a simple yet powerful practice that can enhance your overall well-being, bringing you out of your head and back into your body.
Going for a walk can structure your day and give you a feeling of groundedness. An evening walk or a morning walk gives you structure and elevates the overthinking process during those periods. Why? Because you know exactly how you will spend your time, you reduce the thinking process as this habit will become automatic.
