    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...

    Like A Dog...

    “Wanna go for a walk?” my friend says absent mindedly, tapping her shoes against my chair.“Walk?!” *My head perks up like a meerkat would from a bundle of papers* “Need you ask?!”So I quickly put away my work into my backpack and slung the bag over my shoulder on to...

    Just came back from one!

    If you can, go for at least one or two walks per day to stay fit.

    I love to walk in the woods

    or along the shore.. When i walk along the beach i always try to find an area where i am alone. I love the sound of the surf and of the sea birds calling and when i walk, i sing. I make up sad sweet love songs and sing out loud wich is why i prefer a secluded beach. it`s so...

    I've always been walking,

    wandering, exploring. Unique experiences and amazing places I believe to exist all around us, behold the heart which notice them. Owning a sledge-dog like mine requires certain distances each day, yet I think this amount of exercise is only natural for just anyone, what we all...

    Especially when I am in the company of solitude

    and silence and the path is pleasantly uncrowded.

    Oh if the paths we walk could talk,

    the tales they would tell…Of the moments of silence when we are lost in thought, oblivious to all, trusting the path to be unchanged, carrying us where needs be…Of the thoughts spoken aloud, compelled to be heard, perhaps by reaching the ears solving the problem...

    I love to walk alone sometimes,

    being around people is great you can laugh and have a great time, but being alone in the solitude of God's creation with your thoughts and your feet pounding the pavement or dirt path. Just you ..... it's so tranquil and refreshing, it's like recharging your batteries...

    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...

    August 25, 2015. Another nice long walk with

    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...

    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 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...

    I just went for one yesterday,

    but then I started thinking about my ex-boyfriend and it became a run... That's one of the things I love about walking. It can act as so many different things for us. We could use them to clear our minds, to expand on the clutter, for exercise, or just to enjoy the beauty...

    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 :)

    A few years ago my weight really got to me

    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...

    for me, cause I work home in the computer. So, I've decided to go for walks whenever time permits. I live near the sea, so no problem in walking long distances. My doctors told me it's quite good for body and mind. The fact is that during and after a long walk, there's no room...

    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. :)

    Autumn Sunday afternoon walks can be inspiring.

    The rustle of leaves, an array of colour. Wrapping up warm. Bird song, migrating birds. A flurry of movement of grey squirrels. people in wellingtons.

    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.

    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.
