“In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.” – John Muir
Nature has blessed us with different organs and parts with a definite purpose.
If Heart is meant to pump blood and maintain circulation system; Brain is meant for thinking and Locomotive organs like Legs and Hands are to carry out physical activities.
We Human Beings of modern society love and breathe a laid-back lifestyle and term it as ‘comfort.’ The comfort of traveling in an automobile first leads to the underutilization of Legs which affects Brain and Heart leading to cardiac and mental ailments.
We develop modern-day ailments like diabetes, heart problems and psychological problems due to our lifestyles, and finally, doctors advise us to come out of so-called comfort zones of excessive vehicle usage and sweat a bit in sunlight and burn fat accumulated in bellies through exercise. One such Nature’s gift is walking which we mastered as a one-year-old kid and have forgotten as we grew up due to laziness.
“Walking is a man’s best medicine?” said Hippocrates and “An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day,” said Henry David Thoreau
