I picked up my IPod and tied my new sport shoes and got ready for my morning jog. I normally do yoga every morning but recently I decided to add jogging in my schedule. I am very lucky that I have a big ground near to my house. When I saw many people in the ground, I was surprised. It was 6:00 am in the morning and hundreds of people were doing different activities in the ground. I was full of motivation after seeing that.
Morning is always beautiful especially in summer because it’s very bright. It comes with a new hope every day. If you walk in the early morning then you get lots of energy and your whole day goes lively and you feel full of life. Everything is so pure in the morning. Even pollution is less. Science has proved that it helps you in increasing your productivity. You feel refresh and become ready to face challenges of life. You yourself know that when you sleep till late, you feel sleepy and lazy whole day.
Today I decided to observe people and their activities in the ground. Most of them were school kids as they have vacation. I never understood that if you ask a kid to get up early in the morning to study, he will never do but if friends call him to play cricket then he will get up at 6:00am on his own. Even I used to do thatJ. Frankly speaking we need to learn from them how to live life or at least try to remember what we were doing when we were kids. They are full of energy and vibrant.
Other class of people I noticed was between the ages of 50 to 60 years. Some were walking and some were playing volley ball. I have noticed that they play for one hour daily and they play on Sunday also. They play with commitment and dedication. Some people were doing yoga and meditation also. I know one lady who is of age 88 years comes ti ground every morning for walk. She is the biggest inspiration for my morning walk.
I have seen that morning walk also helps in developing relationships. Working married couple doesn’t get time for each other in their busy day but during morning or even night walk they share their views with each other. The good thing is that there is no mobile or TV or anybody else to diver their attention. If you are not able to spend quality time with your spouse then start morning or night walk from today. Another relationship I saw was between owner and their pet. A Dog may run through entire ground but it will come back to its owner only. I have seen that small kids also love to play with them. Owners come to ground for their pet but it helps them also. Also some grandparents were playing cricket with their grandsons. All this small things matters most in life.
One class I was missing was between the ages of 20 to 50 years. I think they are very busy people but I request you to them and to all of you who are not doing any exercise please at least do 30 mins walk in the morning. It will improve your immunity power and it will also give you lots of energy for the entire day.
