Walking can be quite exhausting, especially when you haven’t eaten any food beforehand. This will not only make you lose energy more than usual, but also decrease your concentration as you go along your ideal walking path to clear your mind off, let’s say, from the hustle and bustle or even from the heat of your work life.

But you know what?

Walking can also be quite exciting, especially if you have eaten any food beforehand. This will not only make you gain energy more than usual, but also increase your concentration as you go along your ideal walking path to clear your heart off, let’s say, from the push and pull or even from the pressure of your home life.

And you know what?

What better way to make the latter happen for you than to eat bread?

You see and contrary to popular belief, bread is not just known for its filling properties. It’s also known for its fulfilling properties that don’t just make one gain energy and increase concentration, but also gain the right kind of motivation needed for you to not get tired that easily after walking for just a few steps and the right kind of minerals needed for you to not get pained that easily after walking for only a few meters.

What better way to make the latter happen more for you than to eat bread?

You also see and contrary to popular belief, bread is not just known for its fulfilling properties. It’s also known for its filler properties that don’t just make one gain motivation and increase minerals, but also gain the right kind of inspiration needed for you to not get pained that easily after walking for just a few steps and the right kind of ingredients needed for you to not get tired that easily after walking for only a few meters.

Even more so and especially when you learn how to use a bread machine on your own at home, bread can:

  • Help you boost that immune system of yours that primarily involves our motor functions – to fight off any critical diseases that may suddenly come to your body, as well as to fight off any crucial distractions that may suddenly come to your mind.
  • Help you boost that internal system of yours that primarily involves our cognitive functions – to fight any crucial distractions that may suddenly come to your body, as well as to fight off any critical diseases that may suddenly come to your mind.

So…before you walk, eat some bread.

Make everything simply fall into place.

5 Steps to Paint What You Saw from Your Walking Routine

Imagine walking around your community and you pass by bewitching or lovely scenes such as the setting of the sun, the gathering of birds by the river, an old couple eating ice cream while sitting on a park bench, or perhaps children running around and enjoying themselves by the bridge. Then you realize these events are so charming to see, you’d want to preserve them in your mind exactly how you saw it! However, it’s almost impossible to have a photographic memory unless you’re a trained mnemonist and merely taking pictures is so 2010. So how can you preserve what you saw from your walking routine? Here are the steps:

  1. Antal Berke's Street Scene PaintingTake a picture. What’s great about walking is you don’t have to rush, aside from it helping you stay fit in a cheap way, walking is also a form of relaxation. This is why it’s possible to bring a camera while you walk—they won’t be distracting or hitting your body once in a while. Once you see a beautiful scene, take a good picture (consider the lighting and angle). It’s also ideal to take lots of pictures so you can have numerous images to choose from later on.
  2. Print the photo. This step is self-explanatory.
  3. Take a good look at the photo. Be familiar with the picture you’ve taken. Observe everything—from the lines and colors to the lights and texture of the main subject and the other elements in the photo.
  4. Prepare your painting materials and start painting. This is why the third step is essential. You have to study the photo in order to create if not a 100% duplicate at least a 90% replica of the photo. Remember, painting properly will help you preserve a beautiful scene, so you have to do it carefully. When you paint, Van Gogh's Entrance to the Public Park in Arlesbegin with the lines and shapes. No matter how complicated the photo looks like, there will still be basic shapes there. Next, copy the lighting. What parts of the photo are dark? Where are the light ones? Where should you paint the shadows and reflections? After the lighting, concentrate on the textures. What part of the photo is smoother than the other? Of course, you’re not supposed to forget the color. You might need to mix a few paints to get the right amount of color in the picture, so take your time.
  5. Let your painting dry! Once it’s dry, not only will you appreciate your painting but the act of walking as well. When you paint what you saw, you’ll become more observant with your surroundings while becoming healthier! It’s a win-win!
