The Value of an Afternoon Walk

Yesterday I headed out with my 9 year-old son and our beagle for an afternoon walk to meet a requirement for Cub Scouts. As we walked in the woods near our house, I asked him what he liked most about walking. He said without hesitation, “Spending time with my family.”

As we walked the rest of the way and looked at a cool turtle and collected trash, I couldn’t have found a better reason to stretch my legs. Take a walk with someone you love. It may just be the best part of your day.
