Have you ever watched a baby take its first steps? Quite often the baby's face will wear a
triumphant smile, one with the proud knowledge of what an accomplishment he or she
has just made.
And you have just witnessed the beginning of a lifetime of walking. Isn't it remarkable that
we have this method of locomotion? However, in our current society, we tend to ride instead of
walk. And most of us spend years of our lives sitting at desks all day long. Will atrophy eventually set in? Will we one day not be able to walk?
Elderly people, and those with limiting diseases, can tell you how it feels not to be able to
easily walk. So get with it while you still can. Start a daily walk. It could be in a gym, at a
mall, or outside. Just one-half an hour can make a difference in your mood, as well as give
your body some of the exercise it needs in order to maintain good health.
And it needn't be boring. Many creative ideas can rise to the surface as you walk. Give it a try.
