simple pleasure of the week: going for a walk

Our simple pleasure of the week is going for a walk. Going for a walk alone in silence, or with some awesome tunes blasting through your headphones is one of my favorite simple pleasures at the moment. If you can do this in nature, even better, because nature does some awesome things to your brain, body, and sense of connectedness to something greater than yourself. Walking is also known to be a great stress-reliever, and wonderful way to process stressful moments or traumatic events. Walking with someone is also an opportunity to get some quality conversations in. I think I do my best thinking and communicating while walking. Smiling at strangers, smelling the fresh air, moving through nature, and realizing the expanse of the world we live in are all great reasons to go for a walk. Best part about's totally free.
