Walking every single day

This weekend, the prompt from Sue W and GC for their weekly prompts is Walking!

I’m re-sharing this post from Dec 2021!

What are the benefits of getting up early?

We all know them. Have been drummed into our minds since we were kids. The schools start early, work starts early and the garbage trucks arrive early!

But as we grow old(er) we sometimes fall out of the habit of getting up early. A little nudge is needed now and then to remind us. Getting up early has the double advantage of getting more things done during a day but also one can go for an early morning walk. This is the best time of the day for walking. One can commune with nature, see the timid creatures scavenging for food and gain all the benefits of fresh air. The breeze playing through the leaves of the trees sounds like nature’s band playing the symphony of universal music! It’s a good time to gauge your fitness level too. A short run or a brisk walk tells us how fit or unfit we are.

We each have priorities in life but good physical and mental health should be everyone’s priority. Walking keeps us physically and mentally in good health.

So are you getting up with the lark tomorrow?

  1. I couldn’t agree with you more about the benefits of getting up early. While it may seem daunting to wake up before the sun rises, it can actually have a positive impact on our overall health and productivity.

    As you mentioned, one of the biggest advantages of getting up early is the extra time it provides us to get things done. By starting our day earlier, we have more time to complete tasks and accomplish our goals. This can help reduce stress and increase our sense of accomplishment.

    In addition to the practical benefits, early mornings also offer a peaceful and serene environment that can be difficult to find during the hustle and bustle of the day. Going for a walk or run in the early morning allows us to connect with nature, clear our minds, and set a positive tone for the rest of the day.

    Furthermore, engaging in physical activity like walking or running can have significant health benefits. It helps improve cardiovascular health, strengthens muscles and bones, and reduces the risk of chronic diseases like obesity and diabetes.

    So, I completely agree that good physical and mental health should be a top priority for everyone. And, waking up early can be an effective way to achieve that. Tomorrow, I’m definitely getting up with the lark and heading out for an early morning walk.

    Thank you for sharing your insights on this topic! 👍👏👌😊

  2. I’m like you, Sadje, early to bed, before eleven and awake by half six.
    Since my first bout of Covid two years ago, my walking is limited. but I still enjoy a short walk.
    Thank you for joining us, Sadje. 🙂

  3. Not a morning person and I will be up a little later tomorrow as I’ll be working from home. I was up at 5.30 this morning though, and out the door the back of 6.30 for my commute to work. I do have a 20-30 min walk to the college when I get off the train
