I usually get up 5.30 a.m. and go for a morning walk with my grandfather. He takes me through the nearby fields and points out the different coloured birds to me. Thus I can now identify many birds all by myself.
We then make our way to the nearby park. My grandfather takes a short rest on the bench while I play on the cool, dew-filled grass. The flowers in the park look very beautiful and fresh in the early morning sun.
Then we make our way back home through the tree-lined streets. There is no traffic on the roads that early in the morning. Only some morning walkers like us are there to give us company. One can hear the chirping of birds very well in that silence.
My morning walk with my grandfather leave me very fresh and ready to face the day with an enjoy the golden rays of the rising sun and the fresh beauty of everything around us. I have thus developed a love or nature. morning walks are a very healthy habit and a must for young and old alike.
There is an old proverb that says ‘Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. I am in the habit of getting up early in the morning and have formed the habit of walking long morning walks in the past two years.
It is a light Precise and best for physical fitness. The morning air which is fresh and pure is beneficial for the lungs. The early rays of the rising Sun are good for healthy skin. ‘Health is Wealth’ and Doctors also recommend morning walk to their patients for gaining sound health and freshness of energy. At a distance of about one kilometer from my house there is a big park. Along with my neighbourhood friend I cover the distance. We job in winters and walk’ easily in summers.
On the way we meet other people, whom we know by now, heading towards the park. We exchange greetings and move on. It is very rare that we two friends miss our morning walk. During winters mostly the people stay indoors but during summer young and old alike are seen enjoying the beautiful weather. The dew drops on the leaves, grasses and flower petals shine like little pearls. There is the refreshing cool breeze blowing the sweet smell of the flowering plants.

The birds chirruping in groups are seen all aroma. It is almost the same scene daily and same people we meet in the park but the charm of early morning is everlasting. We run on the circular path of the park. After two-complete rounds we let ourselves fall on the wet grass and roll happily on the softness below.
Few little children are seen playing with balls. Only the old and the aged are seen sitting in a group. They all know each other well. They prefer to sit quietly and discuss matters on politics, the changing times and their younger generations. Fat people walk briskly in a bid to reduce extra fats.
As we lay down to rest we watch the sun in the sky. The sight of the rising sun and the quick change of colors is captivating. The morning walks keeps me fresh and energetic the whole day. A regular morning walk is necessary for maintaining a sound body and mind.
