    I love a quiet, midnight

    or early morning walk. When it's all cool and breezy out that's a bonus! Just a great way to unwind, get some exercise, and have some peace of mind to think to myself. Love when it's quiet and peaceful and I can just plug in my headphones and forget about all my problems.

    I Miss My Walks

    It is late winter and I haven’t walked my mile or two a day for a couple of months now. I miss my daily treks terribly. I love to walk at sunrise, and if I can, I enjoy walking again in the late evening. I live to see the golden sun slide down behind the green rolling hills and...

    Walking with no define destination in mind is

    an opportunity to sort through the issues that trouble me and develop a plan of attack. Many times on these walks i sing aloud... other times i speak to the wind... still there are times when I walk in tears and silence... But no matter how I leave.. I return with a new...

    Everyday

    I love a walk in nature after my morning coffee, listening to birdsong or inspiring podcasts in my ipod. I think it´s one of the best habits one can have, it gives both exercise and time to think and connect with something deeper. clears the mind and invigorates the body...

    Went for a walk with my brother

    and his friends off the path through woods and farms. It was so nice to get out of the house and explore new places.

    I too like to go for long walks.

    I sometimes take my camera with me, and I will take pictures of what I see and experience. The other day, Thursday I think it was, there was quite a bit of rain that came down during the evening and late night. Too much actually. It caused flash flooding throughout my part...

    It use to clear my mind like lifting,

    now my mind races and fills with thoughts I can't erase, the pressure building with every step and recollection. Trying to find some inner peace from something that burns and aches so deep inside.

    Ugh... What a way to air off some steam,

    and stressing cares of the world. Walking, period, had once gave me an opportunity to sort things out, reevaluate my life & ponder on things I wouldn't otherwise think of. Ear phones full of power music was my best friend; and through walking, I'll travel to places in my head I...

    Calms my mind, gives body some movement

    and relaxes your soul. you can think while walking if you are angry... as the more you walk the more your anger subsides. A nature walk is the best thing possible :)

    Therapy On A Crazy Day

    so I started going for long walks. If download a new album and had out with the ear buds and get lost in the music. It actually got to be quite a habit. At my age it took quite a while but I did lose weight. I also got into juicing, that whole Joe Cross movement. It does work...

    I enjoy getting up early,

    before 5 A.M., going online to check email and the latest news items, then going for an hour and a half walk before a nice refreshing shower and a good breakfast. I enjoy the meditative, reflecting time while enjoying a vigorous walk.

    Snowfall

    I like the peacefulness of taking a walk.

    Sometimes I'll listen to my favorite music other times I just enjoy the serenity of natures playlist. As I approach people I always look at them, smile and say "Hi". Most will return the greeting with a "Hi" or similar response completing the very brief conversation. The people...

    Taking a few of my dogs to the dog park

    or for a walk on the trails is my favorite thing to do, probably ever. Nothing can replace that feeling of bonding with your dogs over a nice refreshing walk. :)

    Long silent lonely walks on the side of the

    road at night... When a car passes me by, the world lights up, especially after its rained. Everything shines like silver or gold. Then it's gone... Reminds me of life, a long lonely walk through the darkness until something lights up our world for a second... I live to see...

    When I'm down, feel hurt

    or confuse and need to clear my head, long walks help me feel tremendously better. There is something about fresh outdoor air that can rejuvenate the soul. I will have a date with my walking shoes tomorrow morning.

    A Sunday Walk

    Some people go to church for their Sunday return to spiritual insights. I like to go out for a long walk, and contemplate, meditate, and chant. It is a great separation from the normal aspects of your everyday life.

    Only a few days ago, I went
