Hi everyone! How are you today? 💕 Back when the weather was warmer and the sun was shining down on trees laden with leaves (that feels like a lifetime ago!) I would often go for walks up and down the road when I was well and able and savoured the experience wholeheartedly (let’s just forget those times when I moaned about how hot it was shall we? 😂).
Each walk seemed to bring different things to the table and I cannot wait to incorporate them into my routine again. For now I have made a list of what makes a good afternoon stroll so wherever you are, relax back and get ready to go on an imaginary journey! 😵😂 Here is what makes a good afternoon stroll:
Who you are with 👭
If you’re on your own an afternoon stroll is the perfect way to clear your mind. I tend to go with one of my dogs and it’s always an eventful time! I’m either talking them out of walking through the mud (which they do just to spite me I swear 🙌) or trying to get them to the side in time before a car runs us down 😂
A hot drink in a flask or a cold bottle of refreshing water 🍶
Most often the latter of the two as a cold bottle of water is heavenly whilst embarking on a walk so as to keep up energy levels and quench thirst 🌊
Snapping a few photos 📷
I try not to be stuck behind my phone when when I’m out and about but sometimes you just know when something is photo worthy and can’t help yourself! 😂 I enjoy looking back on the photos later on and placing myself back in that moment in time ✨
Trainers with a bounce in em & A coat to keep warm!
I love wearing shoes that make me want to walk and also make it easier to do so! The shoes I choose for going on walks up the road have memory foam in them so that my muscles don’t end up aching for long after wards. A coat is also essential in case it rains too 🌧️
Sometimes I get caught off guard by how beautiful the countryside is and I lose track of time taking it all in. It’s just what the doctor ordered after being cooped up inside most of the time 😂
A gentle breeze + fresh air 🌬️
And last but by no means least, a gentle breeze + fresh air! To remind you where you are, what you’re doing and where you’re going.
Thank you for reading! 😉 Do you like going for walks? What do you think makes a good afternoon stroll? Let me know and have a lovely day ❤️
