More on Walking …

More on Walking …

The San Franciso Chronicle has an article about companies that have instituted walking programs to improve employee health. The 10,000 steps concept is actually what spurred me to start walking the dogs to and from the dog park in the first place. I bought a two dollar pedometer, and discovered that adding that 2 miles to my day put me generally up in the 10,000 step zone.

Discovering that the sound of running water, and the sight of a few birds in the morning helped with my general stress level was just a nice side effect.

  1. I shake my head when I see those little ‘water features’ and Zen gardens in boxes for sale in shops and racks of relaxation CD’s
    As I walk my pack of dogs the stream by the lane bubbles and babbles refreshingly, the wind rattling the maize makes a more melodic windchime and the song of the swallows darting and dipping overhead is more relaxing than any ‘chill-out’ music…
    And it’s all free
