To me, walking is a great form of exercise – perfect for people who are on the go and don’t have time for long workouts at the gym. There are many benefits of walking, like improving your mood, increasing energy and managing weight. And for someone new to an area, it’s a great way to explore your surroundings.
I’ve never shared this before, but walking has been my go-to-activity during lunch. I work in downtown Milwaukee just a few blocks away from Lincoln Memorial Drive and the Oak Leaf Trail. On an average day, I’ll walk 3.25 miles during my lunch hour. Depending on how busy my week is, I can usually get in 3 walks per week, maybe even 4 on a really good week. Since I’m a copywriter, I mostly sit at my computer all day, so it’s a great way to recharge my body and brain.
Since my walks are so scenic, I thought I’d show my readers what a typical lunchtime break walk looks like.
