Beginning promptly at 12 p.m. or even earlier, if the daily stress and phone calls at Yellow Scene begin to get too much, we begin our daily walk around the quaint town of Erie.B
Beginning in mid-May as a staff writer for the travel section of Yellow Scene, the walks began as chilly and brisk, as summer did not come to Colorado until early June this year.
Learning of these daily walks from the editors at the magazine, and knowing it would be “weird” to not walk, I knew I had to give it a try.
Walking every day to take a break from being in the office from 9-5, we sometimes frolic through the grass-covered park with one of the magazine designer’s dog, a three year-old little shitzu called Panda.
Not only is this daily walk a great way to take a break from sitting under the bright florescent lights, while staring at our even brighter computer screens but it also provides great health benefits.
Did you know that, according to Healthy Lifestyle Fitness, a regular walk can help one maintain a healthy weight, prevent or help manage heart disease, strengthen bones, lift your mood, and improve your balance.
Knowing that these walks are a great way to take a break from the crowded office and get to know my co-workers that I have spent the summer with, it helped even more knowing about the physical health benefits behind walking.
Coming mid-August will begin my last few days at the magazine. I know, no matter how hot it gets in Colorado this summer, I will miss these magazine walks.
