Things to have while going for walk
Walks are good for our mind and body. They calm our mind and makes us more energetic and focused. But going for walk without any proper gear can spoil this enjoyable activity.
Like every other activity, there are certain things which you should carry while going for walk and this blog is related to that.
1. Walking shoes
This is one of the most important parts of walking or jogging. Using slippers or some other shoes (like boots, sandals, Loafers, Canvas) should be avoided.
A good pair of sports shoes can avoid foot injuries. I would recommend going for JQR Sports shoes.
Walking shoes should be flexible and lightweight.
Socks should never be avoided. Socks help in keeping feet dry. If you are wearing socks then the chances of slipping of feet will also decrease.
Nowadays there are special fabrics that are sweat socking like polypropylene and wool. They absorb all sweat and avoid slipping.
Walking during sunrise or sunset is a wonderful experience but in these walks you can’t avoid ultraviolet sun rays falling on your skin. Using a high SPF sunscreen can protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet sun rays.
Sunscreen helps prevent sunburn, skin cancer and premature ageing. 30 SPF sunscreen more than blocks 97% of UV-B rays.
Hat can help you in many ways. Hat and caps can protect from direct sun rays in hot weather. They will insulate and keep your head warm in cold weather. In the rainy season, they will keep the rain off your face.
New hats also have a reflective design which can be helpful if you like to walk in the night-time.
so you should have a hat for your walks.
5. Water bottle
The human body is composed of more than 60% of the fluid. And when we walk our body temperature increases a little and we sweat. This causes dehydration and can cause low blood pressure, dizziness or headache.
So to keep yourself hydrated you should carry a water bottle. Small size of water bottle with a capacity of around 500 ml will be enough for your walks.
6. Layered clothing
Clothes according to the current season in your location is a must. Not wearing clothes properly can make you uncomfortable and sick. For walking layered clothes are always suggested.
Layered clothes are suggested because layered clothes have better insulation than normal clothes and they keep the body warm. If the weather becomes hot then you can remove one upper layer of cloth to avoid extra heating.
