Enjoying your walk

Looking toward the Mackay Marina buildings.After the initial shock that your body gets from you starting to exercise, (just kidding) you can really start to enjoy the surroundings and the beauty of the area.

It doesn't matter if you are walking around a heavily populated neighborhood or in open space parks and gardens, there is always something different going on that can take your eye.

Where I walk most of the time is along the edge of the ocean and towards a marina. This is the path to the right when I begin the walk. Yes, I feel so lucky to live in such a beautiful area, but sometimes I just walk around the local neighborhood to save the short drive to the coast. The main thing I keep in mind is that I get to walk for at least 30 minutes to do my heart good.

But after awhile, going for a walk in the morning or afternoon doesn't seem such a slog, it becomes enjoyable. Who would ever think that exercise could actually become enjoyable. I pass others doing the same thing and they smile and say hello. Some are walking their dogs, some are with friends or partners and others are alone just enjoying the time in the open air.

All of them have a smile on their faces. They are not only doing their bodies good, they are creating positive healthy minds, and when you do that life becomes so much lovelier.

Sometimes some things you see when exercising are not all that beautiful, yet it is interesting and a part of everday life, which is such a grand thing to be involved with. Life, be part of it. Get outside and start really living.
