How To Turn Your Lockdown Walks More Fun




During lockdown the comfort of your home might start to feel a bit confining and your everyday walk too monotonous. Lucky for you, we have a couple of ideas to help make your daily stroll more exciting!

  1. Have a chat with your loved ones. Maybe suggest your mom, dad, sibling or friend also go for a quick hike and give you a call. That way it feels almost as if you are walking together! It is also a good way to check in on how they are doing. Talking through your emotions and thoughts can help a lot with the stress you might feel during the lockdown.

  2. Try out photography! It doesn't matter whether you think of yourself as a good photographer or not - this is the time to practice. You can just use your smartphone and look out for interesting things to capture during your walk.

  3. Make up lyrics - keep your mind busy by making up new lyrics for a tune you like or even try to write a poem in your head.

  4. Listen to podcasts. There are tons of podcasts and audiobooks on the internet that will definitely make your walk more interesting.

  5. Play counting games. Take in your surroundings by counting things like how many types of dogs, flowers or shoes you see on the way.


   

Remember, walking is one of the best ways to both reduce anxiety and keep yourself active. We hope this list will help you to do so!
