You'll hear the sounds of nature in this episode of Heartsong Fit. I recorded it out in the woods as I was taking a morning walk for exercise. I have my llama, Heartsong, with me. You'll hear the cicadas singing in the background as we navigate around tree branches, unsuccessfully duck under spider webs and frustrate my horse, Madison, who wanted to go with us on the trail.
If you like to walk for exercise, you'll hear about reasons for getting off the treadmill and taking your exercise outdoors! It's very good for our brains!
Take a Walk for Exercise or Stress Relief
You might like to do yoga, cross fit, running, cardio and other forms of exercise, but consider adding some walking in your day to break things up. If you walk alongside a body of water, you reap even greater benefit!
Below you'll find links to the article I mentioned about the benefits that come when you exercise outdoors. You'll also see links to our music which I have in the background in the podcast.
