Restoration Park: Walking In Nature With My Family

It has been a while since our family went walking on trails at a park. So, the other day we went to Restoration Park, in West Monroe, to try out the trails there. We started out at 6:00 p.m and finished a little after 7:00 p.m. Restoration Park is located in 700 Downing Pines Rd, West Monroe, LA 71292. This park was a former strip mine converted into a wetland habitat. Gosh, it’s beautiful out there!

It felt so good sweating while walking on the trail. The humidity wasn’t bad at all by 6:00 p.m. Also, I was so proud of my boys. They were very well behaved from start to finish. And guess what? The one-hour walking helped them slept all night.

Usually, when you go walking you feel tired at night. But it wasn’t the case for me. I couldn’t even remember when was the last time I ever felt relaxed until that evening after walking.

There are numerous physical and mental health benefits of walking. I noticed that every time we go out for a walk it helps me relax all night. Not only that but also helps me think clearly. I’m not sure about you, or how do you feel after taking a walk, but it helps me feel healthier. Walking with my family is a very good idea. Aside from just having company with me it was also a time to bond and see the beauty of nature around us. How about you? Do you prefer to go for a walk alone? Or with family?
