Real Men Take Nature Walks
When this man tells you to get out and take a walk in nature, you’d better do it.
Chuck Norris can cut a hot knife with butter and slam a revolving door. He doesn’t flush the toilet; he scares the sh**t out of it. And when he does push-ups, he’s actually pushing the earth down. So when he says take a nature walk, whether you are a man or a woman, it’s wise to pay attention.
A walk in nature is a perfect backdrop to combine exercise, prayer and meditation while enhancing the benefit of these activities. It has been proved to supply not only physical benefits but also a mental boost. This was confirmed by a study from the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry. The findings revealed that outdoor exercise contributes to increased energy and revitalization – along with decreased anger, depression and tension – when compared with indoor exercise. Outdoor participants in the study also enjoyed their workouts more. A separate study conducted by the University of Essex suggests that outdoor workouts also improve self-esteem. It was further demonstrated that outdoor participants were likelier to stay with the fitness program than those who did their exercising indoors.
These findings are especially important for those of us of a certain age. The key to the future in an aging society is not found in increasing just our life span; we need to increase our health span at the same time.(WND)
For a man who will never have a heart attack (because his heart is not foolish enough to try to attack him), Norris is also living proof that Christians can be real men, too. In the article, he credits his mother’s positive attitude through hardships as one of the greatest influences in his life.
