Monday Morning Routine

I have a significant backlog of blog posts. So many things to do, so little time.
 
Anyway, unahin ko na to, para mabawasan ang mahabang listahan sa draft folder ko. We have this Monday routine. Dahil fixed na Saturday and Sunday ang off ko, busog ako sa tulog pag weekends. Monday morning, I have all the energy para makipag-sabayan sa hyper kong mag-ama :)
 
What we do, nag-la-lakad lakad kame. Yung walang plano kung saan pupunta, bahala na kung saan makarating. Masaya pala yung ganun. Madami kang madidiscover na bagong lugar. Pag napagod na, mag-la-lakad ulit pauwi.
 
“An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day” said Henry David Thoreau. And how right was he! Starting your day with a brisk walk, or even a leisurely stroll around the neighbourhood has many benefits. It gives you a natural energy boost and you feel revitalized. via
 
All are photos are #nofilter. Sorry, Malabo talaga camera ng cellphone ko.
 
 
 

 
So bago magsimula ang paglalakbay namen, dumadaan muna kame sa bakery, hehe :) Nag-babaon kame ng makakain sa daan.
 
 
Look at Chloe's smile. Funny!
 
 
 
 
Yes, I know. It sucks that you have to wake up early as it is, for school, for office,  without having to go for a walk too! But trust me when I say that if you could just put the laziness aside and go for a morning walk every day, your body and your mind will thank you.
 

 
 
 
You may want to do this also. Masarap sa pakiramdam. Mas maganda kung makakapag-simula kayo ng medjo madilim pa. Para pag nag-bukang-liwayway, ma-witness niyo.
 
 

 
 
 
 
Duz made a butterfly out of a leaf. Chloe looked amazed here. Haha.
 
 
 
Ayan, medyo ma-araw na!

 
 
 
Duz was on the other side of the street. Nadapa si Chloe kaya, ayan tinignan ko kung nasugatan. 
 
 
Pero dahil sanay na ang anak ko sa mga ganyan, parang walang nangyari :)
 

 

 

 
 
Can't get a nice shot coz Chloe's so likot. Finally, eto medyo matino.
 




Para sa mga katulad ko na tamad mag-exercise, walking in the morning can be an alternative.


 
Maisingit ko lang - may nadaanan kameng nagtitinda ng Sukang Tuba. Gusto sanang bumili ni Duz pero alam niya na ayoko ng suka. Ang gusto lang ay Sukang Basi. So sad, wala akong mahanap na mabilhan ditto :(


Going back, it took us almost two hours of walking. Fresh air in the morning. Sunrise. Conversation with my loves. Things I really like.

 
Being outside on a warm sunny day can do wonders for your disposition. Try it.

 
 
You can walk the dog, walk with the kids, or just take a stroll by yourself. However you do it, walking is good for the mind, body, and soul. Here are some reasons why it's healthy and important:
 
  • Walking improves circulation; increases your energy level; improves sleep, mood, and sense of well-being.
  • It is free. You don’t need a health club membership or special equipment. A good pair of walking shoes will do the trick.
  • Walking with family, friends, or neighbors can be a social outlet.
  • You don’t have to go anywhere in particular, although that’s certainly efficient; it is more about the journey.
  • It is a good way to calm and declutter your mind. It will get you out of the house and into the great outdoors, where you can let your thoughts roam freely

  •  
    Walk. Walk somewhere. Walk nowhere. Be creative. If you are physically able, you owe it to yourself to use those marvelous legs to walk your way to a healthier body, mind, and spirit… one step at a time. via
     
    
    P.S.
    Duz and I were having fun. We were singing one of our favorite love songs - Grow Old With You. Please excuse our voices, the wrong lyrics and the shaky video. Haha!

    
     
    How about you guys? Do you have a routine for a specific day? Do you also walk/wander with your family?

      1. True. Malamig kasi panahon ngayon kaya minsan mas masarap matulog. Nung wala pa si Chloe, madalas din kame mag-lakad-lakad ni Duz sa gabi. Takot lang maarawan. Hehe. :)
