Today’s Tip: Find a Different Walking Path
Welcome back to the Walking Challenge. Today’s topic is an interesting one for us to write about because it is not something that we experience, and yet we hear it from many people, so we want to remind you about the importance of avoiding boredom with walking.
This is where a lot of people struggle. Since humans are creatures of habit, there's a good chance that you've been walking in the same direction, along the same path, and even around the same time of day whenever you go out for some fresh air.
While the route you take doesn't have any impact on the physical benefits you derive from the activity, it certainly impacts your mental state. Seeing the same surroundings can become dull and tedious for your brain that tends to race during a walk. In order to keep your mind stimulated, you might consider mixing up your walking paths throughout the week.
One day, you can walk around your neighbourhood in one direction. The following day, you could take the same route but in reverse. This is exactly what I have been doing since 2017 and have found it to be a great solution to alternate the scenery on my daily walks in my neighbourhood.
The other thing we do to change up our walking practice is we get out of the city as often as possible to walk a new hiking trail. We find these trails by using a hiking app. These trails are beautiful, abundant and can be a bit or a lot more challenging which makes it a wonderful way to get a few hours of exercise out in nature.
Another way to find an alternate path is to consider heading into a nearby city or park for something very different. Most state and national parks have a variety of walking paths to choose from that offer great views of nature. Although cities might seem too busy, there are many dedicated walking and biking paths that could be more interesting than walking around your neighbourhood.
It's important to remember that walking isn't just a physical feat, it's also a mental game. Walking along different paths can help keep things mixed up and interesting while increasing the likelihood that you'll stick to your new walking practice.
We appreciate that it never seems as if there are enough hours in the day, but it is so important to make a conscious decision to practice moving well, finding a new path today and we believe that walking is the most accessible form of exercise on the planet. Taking care of your mind, body and emotional needs will help you be able to live your best life.
You are your best advocate; if you are not moving well each day, it is easy to get burned out by all of life's demands. Taking some time each day for yourself to get outside and walk can have a profound impact on your well-being. Physical fitness and moving well begin and ends with you!
