Walking to work experiment

WalkingToday is day 6 of my walking to work experiment, and I could proudly say the experiment is a success. For the past 6 work days, I have been walking all the way from home to work and back every day. A distance of 2.7 miles.

Why would I do such a thing? For several reasons: First, walking is good for my health. Second, I can save money on gas and parking. And third, it is good for the environment.

Basically, I decided last Tuesday to see if it is possible to walk all the way to work, so I gave it a try. On that first day I realized I should probably take a hat, water, and a better portable radio. I took the route recommended by Google Maps, only to later find various shortcuts to make my way easier. My conclusion after this initial experiment: It's not too bad.

I kept walking Wednesday and Thursday. Then Friday morning it rained. I decided to walk anyway. Also, I said if I can walk in the rain, I can  keep up this walking program. So, the same day I returned my parking permit and bought an umbrella. I bought 4 daily parking permits just in case.

Now is day 6 of my walking experiment, and I still haven't used any of the parking permits. I feel good and happy. I really hope I can keep it up.

  2. wonderful idea, and your persistence is admirable! Btw, walking is also a way to alleviate pressures and to lower anxiety, and helps to stay out of depression. I run every morning for the same purpose.

    However, I don't know how much it rains in the bay area, but I know that in California, "when it rains, it pours". So keep those daily parking permits for these days... :-)

  17. Physical inactivity can lead to health issues and lower productivity in the workplace. We tested the effects of slow-moving treadmills adapted for office work on employee productivity and health over the course of a year at a financial services business. A total of 43 inactive individuals were split into two groups and given treadmill workstations 7 months apart. Employees might choose a basic chair-desk layout at their leisure. Biometric measures were obtained quarterly, and participants in the research, as well as more than 200 non-participants and their supervisors, were given weekly online performance questionnaires. In this study, we look into three different aspects of the consequences of treadmills in the workplace. Is it beneficial to total physical activity? Does it help with health metrics? Does it help you perform better? You can continue reading about the fun free music games here.
