8 Types Of Morning Walkers

All health conscious people , in fact even those who are health unconscious … know that morning walk or taking a walk for minimum 30 minutes each day is the simplest form of exercise that anyone can do.  Despite, it’s simplicity, it’s a great exercise for loosing those extra pounds of weight, plus, the fresh morning air helps you take in some pure oxygen laden breaths. Thus, strengthening the bodies immune system and improving our overall health.  Well, I myself am an avid morning walker and I love my energy packed strolls. But what actually doubles the fun of the experience is observing the kind of fellow walkers, I get to see on my daily bustle. My observation has helped me categorise these early risers into the below mentioned  types. I bet, you will be able to see a similarity if you are a walker too …. So, here are the 8 types of people, one gets to see on a morning walk: 1. Noses Noses are a highly competitive variety of walkers. When I say Competitive, I really mean competitive.                                       A Nose can be spotted very easily. Whenever while having your brisk walk session, you feel that somebody is constantly chasing you and trying to outwalk you…. Bang On!! That’s the Nose !! These beings are definitely one of the best brisky people on a morning walk. They walk fast. So fast, that somebody else trying to take them over becomes an issue of dignity for them.

Be your own Sunshine – Practice Positivity !!!

Do you ever find yourself hopping and juggling between endless thoughts that refuse to die? Ohh !! Need to send that crucial file to the manager, today’s the deadline. Got to attend the parents teacher meeting at 10, time for complaints, hmmm. Relatives are visiting, lots to do….. What to cook now !!!! How’s my career proceeding !!! I am not satisfied, what should I do…. Need to get things ready for tomorrow, when will I start ???? …………. …….. …. Etc…. Etc …….. That’s how, our Monkey mind is ….. it keeps hopping from one branch to another – from one thought to another, screaming, searching, chattering endlessly. The research says that an average person has 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts in a day. And do you know what these thoughts are prominently about ?   Majority of our thoughts revolve around our Fears, Worries, Complaints, Unpleasant Feelings, Anger, Guilt – All things negative. The reason for our inner dialogue is towards negativity since we are designed to be like that, we have evolved like that. Our (Great)n Grand Ancestors had just one priority – Existence. Existence in Harsh situations, in the wild and making a kill, to get food. The same thought process has been passed to us. We are the most evolved, most intelligent and advanced of the human species, yet we still have the same thought process. We fear and worry about our future, our past, our professional lives as well as our personal lives. This fear and worry further gives way to regrets, resentment, complaints, criticism etc. – again all things negative. Harbouring negative thoughts...

Amazing Benefits of Ghee ( Clarified Butter ) for your Body Ohh, I remember my granny, churning out that delicious curd and handling me out that fistful ball of white creamy mushy super soft butter that I would lick and lick before it streamed down to my elbow.

Exercise – The Kick Ass Stress Buster

Regular Exercising can really make your Blue Mornings and Dull Brown Evenings shiny and vibrant, all you need to do is have some time dedicated to yourself.   5:30 a.m. : Trinnnnnnnnnnnnngggggggggggg ……….. spuckkkkk !!!! 10 more minutes .. 6:00 a.m. : Trinnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggg ………… spuckkkkk !!!!! 5 more minutes and then I am getting up…… 6:30 a.m. : Oh Dear God, I am late !!!!! That is how, most of our mornings are. We hit the snooze button till the time, we finally realise that we are going to have a late start for the day. And for many of us, it happens almost everyday ….. Isn’t it ? Then we rush to get ready – brushing, bathing, breakfast and there, we hit the road. We dodge through the traffic to reach our places of work, study etc. Then we spend our next 7-8 hours, juggling around with the work, people, deadlines, meetings, studies …… phewwww….. and then dodging again through the same traffic, same chaos, we get back home. Once at home, we cook ,clean and get back to our beds to sleep. A vicious, never ending, daily routine of relevant, irrelevant, customary or unusual tasks keeps us engrossed, hardly giving us any time to ourselves and that is when we start feeling stressed.
