4 Things You Need for Your Walk

+ the reasons go one everyday

I’ve come to the full and totally serious understanding that I am simply a better person after I’ve had my morning walk. I walk as many weekday mornings as I can (pending when I have help with Kins and usually go for about 3 miles.

For the past several years I’ve mostly worked out inside. I used to go to the pilates studio 3-4 times a week and before that I went to spin classes. While my walks started out of necessity to move my body (and the inability to be able to do the workouts I was used to), they quickly evolved into one of my favorite parts of the day.

I usually throw on a workout outfit (one of my favorites linked in this post), grab a fanny pack, load it up with a lip balm, AirPods, phone, grab a water bottle (another fave) and head out the door. On my walk I listen to my chill playlists, a book on Audible or a podcast. I take deep breaths, enjoy nature, and come back refreshed and with my workout for the day under my belt. While walking has become a great way to get my cardio in, it has become much more from a mental standpoint. The walks are my “me time”, time to think, time to breath, time to come up with creative ideas, and time to really ground myself for the day.

Even though we can’t go many places at the moment, being able to see where everyone is in the world has been pretty amazing. Whether you’re somewhere chilly with mountains, or warm and blessed with beaches, I’ve loved seeing every story of your walks. From the insane views to the happy pups and strollers, the walks unite us all in a pretty cool and simple way. No matter how grandiose or simple the walk, keep tagging me because they make me smile daily!
