Every day is Earth Day.
What are you doing to celebrate Earth Day and Earth Week?
We are collecting trash, aka treasure, to clean up the roadside in our neighborhood; but, then again, we do this on a regular basis. Then there is the usual recycling, reusing, repurposing and thinking before discarding or purchasing.
Even our weather system is doing its part to do spring cleaning with the crisp, refreshing, cleansing, gusty, sustained winds for the past two days. Brrr.
We are able to save two birds with one task-get outdoors to clean and preserve land and wildlife while walking and squatting. So, we are taking care of our health and the health of our environment simultaneously. A win-win.
Anyway, “walking is man’s best medicine.”* This is a phrase mankind has heard for many centuries; because, it is true. Even Harvard Medical School will agree that walking is one of the best exercises for the human body.
Why? The human body is made to move, especially, walk. Think about how you feel when you are sedentary compared to active. Now put your activity in the outdoors with the added benefit of sunshine and your immune system receives a boost. I could go on all day about the benefits of exercise; so, please, do what you enjoy and savor every moment.
By the way, are we not a part of nature? Go, be one with our calming, balancing, grounding, natural and beautiful world on this celebratory Earth Day. You will be doing yourself and our planet a world of good. 🙂
One more thought: the upside of sheltering in place, during this covid-19 event, is fresher air for all of us; so, go reap the benefits of fresh air while it lasts. 🙂 There is always a silver lining and another way of looking at things.
Best of health to you and good-bye.
