Today is “Take your Pants for a Walk day”. When I first heard about this, I thought everyone could have a lot of fun on this unofficial holiday. In the first place, this fun holiday is to encourage everyone to go for a walk.

Take your Pants for a Walk Day

So, if you’re ready to get people to chuckle, including yourself, get out a leash. And, attach it to a pair of pants. Or, you can secure the leash onto the pants you’re wearing. Indeed, this will gain a laugh from everyone you encounter.

Similarly to National Walking Day, today is a great day to lace up your sneakers and head outside.

Health Benefits of Take your Pants for a Walk Day

Of course, walking at a medium to brisk pace is good for your heart. Not only is walking a good form of exercise, but is also good for reducing stress. Since most of us are always looking for ways to lose weight; walking is one of the easiest ways to burn calories. No matter what size or shape you’re in, walking is something that anyone can do.

No doubt, walking has a lot of health benefits such as:

  • Keeps your heart healthy
  • Helps maintain your weight
  • Also, walking helps improve high blood pressure and strengthen your muscles
  • Can help improve your balance and coordination
  • Moreover, walking is known to improve your mood

Celebrate Take your Pants for a Walk Day

When you wake up today, begin the day by putting on a pair of pants and going for a walk. If you leave your home early, you can always walk on your lunch hour or after work. Another way to celebrate today is to fill a bag with as many pairs of pants as you can find; and put them in a bag and take them for a walk.

In addition to the above ideas, take a walk with weights. Or, organize a group of people and head outside.

Hence, wherever you go today, your pants will go.

In summary, get outside today and take a nice walk.

As always, I welcome your comments.
