How to Make Walking Fun and Interesting?

Walking can be interesting

Here in Bella Vista, Arkansas we see people walking all the time.  They walk around Lake Bella Vista, they walk the numerous walking trails and paths, they walk their dogs, they walk in groups, and where I live in in Norwood Courts, they walk uphill to their mailboxes.

Regular walking is known to be great exercise, and it only takes a few minutes each day to enhance your health.  As a person in a wheelchair, my goal is to get out of this wheelchair and be able to walk on my own again someday.  My husband walks a lot:  1) walking our dog; 2) hiking with the hill-n-dale hiking club; 3) walking to Harps at Town Center for a few groceries; 4) walking to our mailbox. Yes, walking is part of his daily planned activites along with several other exercise means (pickleball, yoga class, biking, fit blast class and more).

Choosing the Right Hiking Backpack

Hiking Backpacks

If you are a hiker, one thing to get right is your backpack.

Size of Backpack

You need to consider the right size for you.  One way to figure this out is to measure the vertical distance from your neck (from the bony bump at the base of your neck to your the center of your back at the hip bones).  You may need a helper to do this.

Vertical Height:

16″ or less, get a size Small

16.5 – 19.5″ get a size Medium

20″ and more, get a Large

Thoughts for Decorating your Home

Home Decorating

Utter the two words “home decorating” in a crowd or women and the place will go mad. These two words seem to breathe fire in women’s bellies. Most women love the idea of home decorating. When discussed in a crowd, there will likely be all sorts of ideas and tips passed around. For some strange reason the female population enjoy smaking changes, especially to their homes. The idea of getting rid of the old and bringing in the new gets women all excited.
