YOUR LIFE A-Z : WALK
You don’t need me to tell you that our lives would be better if we walked more. You have heard things such as“park far away in order to WALK further.” It is best for our heart if we WALK 10,000 steps in a day. Wear a pedometer and see how few steps you actually take when you are not actively working on it. There are other reasons walking can benefit your soul. It is probable that many of you have not heard of walking as a way of prayer or walking as a spiritual practice.
I will be talking about the Labyrinth in the next “L” word, but I thought I would introduce you to it through this important “W” word. To WALK a Labyrinth as a part of a spiritual practice, means meditating about putting one foot in front of the other while staying on the one path to the center and back out again. Walking for no other reason than to pray. Carving out a twenty-minute moment in your busy life to walk as a way of reflection. To WALK means to move; to move means taking steps forward; taking steps forward allows us to become more of who we want to be. Action is the best way to change. To WALK is one of the easiest actions that we can do. If you can’t WALK, imagine walking. Some of the most important things that we can do in our lives are the simplest. Determine to WALK more this year, physically and spirituality.
