Bored and don’t have a lot of extra cash for entertainment? There are many free or very cheap entertainment options to keep away the boredom blues. One of the most overlooked form of entertainment is walking.
Come home from a hard day at work, eat a good dinner and head out into the neighborhood for a walk. It’s a great, free form of entertainment and also can provide many other benefits.
Walking is a great form of exercise. It’s very low impact so you won’t bang and strain your muscles and joints, but you will still burn some calories. The average person can easily walk a mile inÂ 30 minutes. You’ll burn about 100 calories over that 3o minute period or 36,500 calories per year. That’s enough exercise to lose just over 10 pounds in a year without going on a diet!
Walking also helps to relieve stress. Take a look around and enjoy your surroundings. Forget about your boss at work or the pile of paperwork sitting on your office desk. Take 30 minutes to enjoy your life and relieve some stress.
Finally, if you are up for a little more challenge take a hike! Walking through the wilderness will slightly increase your intensity level burning more calories and also adding much more scenery to your walk.
Forget about spending $50onÂ taking the family to a movie. Grab a few water bottles and head put on your tennis shoes. Take a walk around the neighborhood, enjoy the scenery and conversation and save a lot of cash!
