A Walk in the Woods
I've recently discovered that walking in the woods daily is great for your health. I believe that a lot of our modern sicknesses have a lot to do with the fact that we are away from nature. I started walking a few weeks ago, and now I get to feel the change of seasons first hand. The air smells different, the earth sounds different, and the leaves are starting to show some color. I love the morning for its brisk hair and dewy quality, but the afternoon is also a good time for me to go because I experience an energy dip after lunch and it perks me right up. I'm very happy I've started to take advantage of the trails by my house.
