Do you love to walk outside?

I often walk to the office for around 15 minutes and I listen to music while walking. I recently started doing this when I got this new job and I haven't done it before. I thought it would be difficult to walk instead of taking a car (as I was accustomed to) but it turns out that it's fun. Listening to the music (especially happy music) while walking makes it more enjoyable. I look up to the sky and feel the breeze in my face with slight sunshine... it feels really good! It "wakes me up" and readies me for a new day in the office. It makes me feel that life is full of joy and there is so much more ahead of me. I am walking in the city so there are just buildings and cars around me.. I'm sure the experience would be so much better had I been surrounded by nature. How about you? Do you like walking? What do you feel when you walk outside?

When it's not freezing cold outside i love to walk and my daughter does to. I'll put her in the stroller and we'll walk forever it seems like. she enjoys it so much and got so used to it before winter came. took a while to get her used to having to stay in the house cause it was too cold for her. we would walk every morning and every evening and if she didn't get that walk in she was mad. LOL! God bless

that would be a major bonding time for you and your daughter then =) We don't have winter in our country so everyday is a good day to walk as long as it's not raining. I love a slightly cold breeze with sunshine!

I like hiking,especially on Spring or Summer evenings. Breathing the fresh air, enjoying the sunset, listening to the singing bird, I can relax easily. Go outdoors and do some sports can keep up our health.

I love walking outside! Especially when its nice out and warm weather. That wont be for awhile here but I cant wait. I love to get the excersize and the fresh air. I usually take my daughter along in a stroller and make a pit stop to the park to let her play for awhile.

Depends, im not so fond of walking outside just for the sake of walking, then id rather ride a bycicle. Still its nice to walk rather than take any car/buss, that is if im not in a hurry.

I don't drive so I don't have a lot of choice about walking places! I enjoy it though. I don't really like the walk I have to make to get my son to and from school. That gets a bit boring after so many years! I prefer walks I don't have to do. One place I used to work, I didi the same as you and listened to "chill out" music on the way. I enjoyed that. That was my "me" time in between leaving my son with his dad and getting to my shift in the pub. Now I don't go for walks as often as I would like to. Whenever it's a nice day, I will try to walk somewhere even if it's only down the road to the shop. I really enjoy being outside. I particularly enjoy leisurely walks along the canal and exploring with my kids. I sometimes let them take the lead.
