When the weather is nice enough I prefer to do my cardio outdoors. This gets me outside for some vitamin D, a bit of colour, and very much needed fresh air. My iPhone is my constant companion, although its role has changed this year. I used to listen to spiritual music, or homeopathic podcasts. Now I found the audio noise too distracting. Something has changed for me and it is a passage. I’ve gone from being busy while I walk to mindfulness in my walk. I am walking in meditation. It’s a whole other feel. Here is a short video while I’m walking:
Do you feel pulled in by the rhythmic sound of my footsteps? Do you hear the quiet?
Great isn’t it?
I told you that my companion’s role has changed. It has gone from entertaining me to helping me in my quest for health: I check my heart rate on the iPhone’s stop watch before I begin, while I am walking, and again at the end. I time the walk. I check how many steps I have gone on the health app. I am contemplating one of those fitness monitors. Do you know of a good one? Drop me a line.
