Take A Walk If You Are Feeling Out Of Sorts
Do you ever have one of those days when you are simply feeling out of sorts? I know I do. It can be difficult to stay productive when you are feeling out of sorts. You might have so many ideas and thoughts in your head that it’s tough to focus on your to-do list.
Now you do not have to allow the feeling out of sorts to ruin your productivity. You can quiet your mind if you are feeling out of sorts by simply going outdoors for a walk. Then when you are ready, you’ll be able to return to work with focus and clarity.
You may or may not know that we believe walking is the link to living a healthy and vibrant life.
We believe walking inspires the mind, activates the body, and nourishes the soul.
Taking a walk, even a short one, is helpful when you are feeling stressed. Not only does walking get you away from your desk, but we know it’s also a great way to relieve stress. Go outdoors and enjoy some nature if possible. The more peaceful and quieter it is the better the opportunity to enjoy your time outdoors walking. Be choosy with your location. Busy streets can make it hard for you to focus and relax. Instead, opt for quiet streets or walk at a local park that you enjoy visiting.
Research has shown that walking at a lively pace of at least 150 minutes a week can help you:
