Stargazing was cool and families, lovers and people with pets would take to the streets at night to look up. It was a healthy past time that didn’t feel like a workout. (Why?) Because it benefited the mind, body and soul.
It allows you to gain new perspective, looking at the same passageway under a different light. Opening up your mind and tapping into wonderment.
Conditioning through curiosity. You’re wondering, “What’s around the corner?” Then you look up to see a beautiful night sky approaching and take a deep breath. Brain cells are being intrigued and inspired, this is something you will never experience on a treadmill.
With all the benefits of clean oxygen and a beautiful view your soul can drink from this positive experience. Allowing mindfulness and acceptance to regenerate the deepest regions of your being. Uplifting the soul.
Include the ‘Ohana
- Allow them to choose where you’ll walk.
- Choose well lit, community spaces.
- Bring flashlights and pets. (Make it fun.)
- If you have time, pause and bring out a sketchbook.
- Don’t look at your watch, look at their faces.
You can never take back time-spent so use it wisely. Stop regretting and start living your best life!
- Schedule a day to stargaze and walk at night.
- Level up by alternating a brisk walk into a stroll. For example: jog to the light pole and then walk to the next one.
- Model the need for fitness during times of stress. Help your family adapt healthy habits because movement is a wonderful way to cope with stress. (My opinion isn’t medical advice, always consult your doctor.)
Sky’s the limit.
