Just got back from a beautiful morning walk around my neighborhood. The sun is out. It is maybe 60 degrees, which is perfect weather for walking. My neighborhood has a lot of gentle hills, making the walk a bit sweaty despite the temperature. It is early enough on a Saturday morning that for most of the walk the world seemed to be mine alone.
Lately, I haven’t been doing my walks in the morning. I am frequently still doing exercises but typically in the basement with the news on. I had forgotten how much a simple walk with only the birds for company helps center me in the morning.
It is definitely time to restart this practice. Meditation and exercise all at once.
