Walking is one way to get the body living again. A lot of people have subjected their bodies to a sedentary lifestyle making them completely without bodily activity…until the stipulated day at the gym. Sitting infront of the computer, sitting in the car and sitting in the house in front of the tv is all there is. But with abit of walking every now and then, and i do mean long distance walking, the body will be in shape at all times. Will save you some gym money. Just don’t go buying junk food with that money.
Walking helps where running or jogging is a no-no. Everybody can walk, except those without feet. All i’m saying is walk longer for a healthy body. Walking is good, even the late Nelson Mandela used the phrase “Long walk to freedom”. Ok, maybe i got that part wrong, but you get my drift.
Now walking is often times called trekking, this is like a bad term that few people want to be associated with in naija. This is the problem. There are many benefits of tre…i mean walking. Like the photo below shows.
So you see? Walking is the best thing that ever happened to man! i think. Anyway, you should try it sometime. Try walking from Ikoyi to Obalende after the close of work. From the island to the mainland. Walk across the Third Mainland bridge. This is good. Asides that traffic would be considerably reduced if an increasing number considered and tried this out, we’d have more healthy people all over. Yes, there will be casualties, people indeed will slump by the way side, may be fatal too as some will also walk their way to the other side. But let’s look at the bright side, reduced traffic!
