Under the summer sun and amidst the gentle winds, over 170 walkers came together to celebrate walking and made history in itself. Somehow keeping ourselves with the pace leads to stress, mental fatigue, burnout, and a host of lifestyle disease. To maintain the balance between the lifestyle we live and the pace, we need to adopt a healthy & holistic approach towards our Body, Mind & Soul. Our daily habits play a vital role in achieving this holistic well-being. “Walking” is one of the best forms of exercise.
Keeping this in mind, the team of ‘LetsWalk’ and Vrudhi Holistic Health Care successfully carried out the 3rd edition to the ‘Lets Walk’ initiative, urging the common man to take up walking and stay connected to their nature. This is also the foundation of the group created by Dr. Bhavi Mody, “Your Health in Your Hands!”, with a vision to provide information and encourage people to take charge of their health and well being.
The participants gathered by 7.30am at the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Borivali East.
A short walk into the green forest is where the action all began. Starting with a warm-up session by a professional, the enthusiastic group participated in doing the stretches and gearing up their body for the following activities.
There is just something about being with nature on a nice summer morning. As the group progressed ahead deeper into the luscious green trees, they were overwhelmed by the beauty that surrounded them. The next point marked the point of return. This time they did not just walk back but had the chance to participate in a Nature treasure hunt back to the starting point.
The treasure hunt was a golden opportunity to dig out the overlooked beauty.
The weak internet connection built some strong connections. The laughter and the footsteps of the walkers was music to the ears. Bonding is what we miss out in our daily lives, and that’s what we curated through this event with the help of walking.
‘LetsWalk’ movement, initiated its first event on 3rd June 2018 and another prosperous event on 2nd September 2018.
The healthy walkers were given goody bags filled with hearty treats. A homeopathy kit by Vrudhi Holistic Health Care added to goody bag made it complete. The ‘Letswalk’ event focused on all generations if raised in a balanced manner. Lets walk will continue to organise these walks because walking is so simple that there is no other reason not to explore nature.
