The Happiness of Evening Walks
100 Days of Happiness – Day 27
It was sometime last year that I started to wake early in the morning and go for morning walks. It was fun, and energizing too, and I thought it’d be something that’ll fall into my routine on its own. And to be frank, it did fall into routine, at least till we went on a trip and the walk couldn’t continue there. I restarted it when a friend wanted company for morning walks, and it felt like the continuity would be maintained. Again, the lazy me took over, and for some reasons, the morning walk came to a stop again.
Be it morning or evening, to brisk walk for a few kilometers is not just joyful but energizing and calming as well. If it is in the morning, I get to see the sun rising between buildings and over the park where I go to walk. I feel the coolness of the mist as well. If it is in the evening, I get to see the moon over the trees and walking along with me. Thankfully, my house is in an area where there isn’t much traffic.
Happiness is… restarting the walking sessions today evening. It’s not as long as I wanted it to be. But it’s a start, and hopefully, I shall be able to persist this time and go back to when I would walk for 6 to 10 km each day.
