Time To Take A Walk?

“”Me thinks that the moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow”. – Henry David Thoreau

Is it time to take a walk around the block? Yes! It is not too hot for a short walk. Fill a bottle (refillable one of course) with water and set out with the goal of walking for 15 minutes. Before you know it, a half an hour will have gone by. Say hello or simply smile at anyone you pass on the way. When you return home (or to the office) your head will feel clearer and you will be more productive.

Some ideas to put some walking in your day:
**Maybe you need to pick up something from the drug store, so instead of hopping in the car, walk there. 
**Spend a part of your lunch hour walking. Keep some comfortable shoes in your desk. 
**Gather up the family for a walk after dinner. The weather is cooler and it will help your body digest food more efficiently.
