    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. :)

    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.

    We have a pet dog. I always walk like 1,

    5 hour with the dog. I bring always my dslr camera with me. If i see a good opportunity to make a picture, i take it! :). I used to make pictures with my HTC Sensation when i began, but the quality was off. Now i can make some pretty pictures with my DSLR! :)

    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.

    I like to walk early in the mornings around 5am.

    It's quiet and peaceful and it's nice to feel like I'm free from everything for a little while. It's like being on a different planet when nobody is about although the places are familiar. It helps me cope with the rest of the day.

    Every day I walk and walk

    for miles. Every day, but windy days. My favorite thing to do is walk and hear nature all around me. Or see the birds fly around. I'm very easily entertained my nature itself.

    Just about every day,

    rain or shine, I walk my good dogs. We walk about three miles. Sometimes we chase squirrels. We walk in the early morning or the dusk of night... sometimes, if we can, we just walk in the middle of the day. We walk by the pond in the woods and sometimes we talk to God.

    Who else thinks long walks alone are healing?

    When I was 18 I started walking because it was how I dealt with my OCD and anxiety. Every time I felt panic I would throw my headphones on and walk. By the time I was in my 20's it got so bad that I was walking 10-15 times a day. I've gotten help with my problems since and now...

    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 :)

    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.

    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.

    I purposely go for long walks.

    I find any reason to walk further. It drives my friends and family crazy how I park at the tail end of the parking lot just to walk further away to the entrance door.
