Take a Walk


Take a walk. Hmmm. Did I do that today? No, I’m doing it now.

You know, I choose to remember to take a walk every day.

Does it happen?

Usually, but sometimes I’ll just let it slide, or not feel like not do it.

And I find that when I do that, that I don’t feel as well. I don’t flow as well.

After all, we are made up of energy. When I walk, I am moving my energy around. I’m revitalizing my body. You know, it’s just a good thing for me to do.

So, I choose to remember that on my list should be me.

Me on the list is taking a walk. It’s part of what I know to do to feel better.

You may know something that you may do to feel better : dance, sing, read.

You may feel that I don’t have the time. I can’t fit it into my schedule.

But, I say you do have the time. There’s always time to fit in what you need to do. To re-energize, to renew, to refuel yourself.

I think of me as a car. I’m fueling me to run better, to feel more effective, to feel more effective.

And everything just flows better when I take my walk.

It doesn’t cost me anything to take my walk. Yes, it costs me time. But, it really doesn’t because I am gaining so much.

The time I am out there spending with myself. Listening to nature. Talking to God. Just breathing in the air. And reflecting, “Oh, wow, I got that walk in today.”

So, it does take a little bit of discipline. And you can just ask for a “nudge” in your spirit to help remind you to do this. But, it’s so worth it.

So, I suggest to you take a walk. Or you take the time to do what fuels you and renews you to make you be more energized, relaxed, calm and peaceful as you go about each day.
