Everyone looks forward to the lunch hour. It is a special time of day. It kind of separates the day in half. I enjoy going into our company lunchroom and joining a number of my fellow employees. Some days we sit and talk while we eat our lunch; other days we sit and watch a late breaking story on satellite tv from www.direct.tv/direct-tv-deals.html.
Once I finish my lunch I either join another group of walkers; or, I head out alone with my iPod and listen to my favorite music. I really enjoy the daily walk. I find it offers me a way of getting some exercise during as well as reducing the stress that has built up during my morning work schedule.
Since our office is located in the middle of a downtown area I always have a choice of areas where I can walk. One of my favorites takes me by a number of shops where busy travelers go inside the stores while others exit in a hurried manner. I then head south where I have a total change in my environment. One of the most beautiful parks in the city is located here.
The park is a great area to walk as it has paved sidewalks around the entire outer area as well as other sidewalks that go to different areas of the park. Here I sometimes alter my course, according to how much time I have left before returning to work. One sidewalk allows me access to the other side of the park, if I am in a hurry, where I can cut my walk in the park in half (instead of going to the end of the park).
Since I have my walk well-timed I feel relaxed when I enter the building to complete the rest of my work day.
