Working in an office for 8 to 9 hours a day, I’ve come to really appreciate my mid-morning walks. They allow me to get under the sun, breath outside air, break up my sedentary work-day, and think alone.

The biggest benefit I’ve noticed, however, is how much it has helped me be positive, uplifted, and better at managing the stress of my day.

Here are a few other benefits I’ve noticed about mid-morning walks:

  • Lowers stress later in the day – I don’t know why but I do better in traffic if I take a walk in the morning
  • Increases sunlight exposure – Less likely to come home and take a walk at the end of my day, getting my sunlight exposure earlier helps me make sure I get some during the work week instead of only on the weekends
  • Helps with stress management – the sun is good for giving me good vibes. I’ve read in a few places that the sun helps humans release the hormones that make us feel better.
  • Lowers the damage of a sedentary lifestyle – humans aren’t evolutionarily prepared to sit for long periods of time. We are supposed to move. Walking mid-mornings and to get water regularly helps with movement big time.

If you also spend a majority of your day sitting at a desk and notice your mood can definitely use some improvement, try getting outside for a walk. Especially in the morning when the air is crispier. If the weather is permitting, a good mid-morning walk can not only help with your mood but also your health and wellbeing.
