In Others’ Words: Take Your Medicine
Walks are a great way to start the day.
My friend Mary and I meet up around 7:30 a.m. and head out for a good three-mile walk. We take our phones with us, too — but we use them as cameras and look for what we call “a little bit of pretty.” Today’s blog post image? That was taken on a recent walk with Mary. On that particular morning, our friend Jeanne joined us.
By the time I’m back home, I’m ready to start my day. I’ve cleared my head of things that are weighing me down. I’ve laughed — oh, yes, there’s always laughter during the morning walks. We’ve begun praying, too, about particular concerns close to our hearts. And we always end our walks the same way: we look at each other and say:
This is the day the LORD has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24)
So I have to agree with Hippocrates: walking is some of the best medicine. It’s not found in a bottle. You don’t need a prescription — but the refills are limitless. Walking is good for your body, your mind, and your spirit.
