"Early to bed,early to rise,makes a man healthy,wealthy & wise" Its' a famous saying that we are taught since childhood,but one,that only a few succeed in adhering to.I have been one of those few exceptional ones,to stick to this belief ever since I was a little girl.The motivation for the same came from my father,who has always been religious about his daily routines.
One of the habits that I learnt from him & I follow till date,is going out for a morning walk.On all school vacation days....I used to be a good girl,get ready early to be a companion with my father.Those brisk,at times leisurely, walking sessions that used to wake me long before dawn,that gave a chance to be up earlier than the early birds,walking seeing the skies change from the star lit ebony hues to the crisp sunrise shades are all still so fresh in my mind.
With time, life has changed me in infinite ways,but the habit that has been with me still is to wake up early,to be with nature and to feel the fresh,cool morning air rushing past me.Morning walks have taught me & blessed me with a lot of things.Yeah, in saying that,I might sound a little weird...but that indeed is a fact.
My walk sessions with my father,weren't just limited to admiration of scenic beauty or an exercise schedule,but we enjoyed having a warm conversation of things lighting up our day-to-day life.All those moments are still so fresh in my mind,as fresh is the cool morning breeze that's blowing as am writing this down.
Mornings hold a special place in my life......I find myself feeling most calm,composed yet the most energetic at those cool & quiet hours.I have captured in pictures a few of the beautiful moments I enjoyed during my walks.I so dearly wish,to pass on this legacy of getting close to nature,God and your own self,that I myself learnt from my father

Ordinarily, in today’s hectic world, its quite possible that amidst so much that’s happening around you, making you feel that an ideal life is but a living dream, (which may remain as one), you tend to lose out on great many things that the future holds for you. A great walk in the woods while admiring nature talks to you in many ways than one. For many of us this may be one of those things for which you either need luck or perhaps the time. And most of us believe that these are never in one’s grasp. There are many ways you could possibly benefit from an exercise as simple as morning walk. Up front, in today’s irritatingly fast world, you deprive your self of the much needed oxygen, that is anyways getting depleted with time. The earliest hours in the morning would probably give you this and the quality time to spend with the greenery around you, and observe around you things that only perhaps writers and poets around you seem to notice. The oxygen that you get earliest in the morning also gives great amount of energy especially to your joints. The movement in your legs releases the good cholesterol in your blood, opening up some of the "chakras" or channels of energy, constantly moving your joints and increasing your blood circulation in a way that can only be completed with your daily morning walk. Benefits of a great stroll Besides a lot of things put together, a lot of people have noticed that despite the universally addictive feeling of laziness to leave their cosy bed, realize that a stroll helps in reducing stress. The wintry air in the morning that is at its coolest, soothes your nerves and allows your toxins to get cleared. A naturally available medicine, your morning walk also allows you to get rid of any gastric blockages that might not allow you to get a sound sleep, and also adding to the excesses of pain to your body. Most diabetics have noticed a remarkable decline in their blood sugar levels, thanks to their regular promenades, especially the one taken earliest in the morning. A boon to those who thanks to their heredity are blessed with diabetes, the morning walk is supposed to be the best option only next to their insulin injections. By and large these people who have to make the insulin injections their best friend have noticed that regular walks in the morning can also let them bid farewell to these forever! If you don’t believe me, just try it once for at least a month, I can guarantee you that you shall observe a marked difference in your entire lifestyle. Its true that the things that work best in this world are expensive, and it cannot be more true than in the case of getting up early. What’s really the additional benefit is that morning walks are most of the time responsible for inducing great sleep. Titillating the pituitary gland, the oxygen which is best given to us by our green friends, (plants) the entire bodily system is revitalized helping the skin glow at its maximum. The facial muscles are royally treated with the windy atmosphere, lowering your blood pressure and helping you deal with a normalcy that you thought medicines would allow you to! Well, let me tell you that you thought wrong! And if you’ve already had a good walk in the morning, your cardio vascular exercise is completed and your body has completed its full circle, making you look at life rather differently and bringing in some harmony too! Walk and the Woman Most women complained of the excessive work that bogs them down and also that for at least four to five days in a month when they are going through their menstrual cycle, it becomes increasingly difficult for them to cope up with this routine. For them my advise to them is that you could include a special diet of bananas in your diet earliest in the morning for breakfast. Corn flakes and bananas are known to be the killers of PMS. Once the initial depression that menstruation brings in is battled, you can be sure that your walk may not be all that stressful, instead you can take it as a good stroll in the morning, making you enjoy your days and relieve you of the unnecessary hassles of being a woman! Think about it! Some food for thought!
