Walking In Bad Weather

Walking In Bad Weather

Walking is one of the best exercises for health and fitness. Sometimes the weather's bad. You can still walk. Learn how:

If it is raining and you can't get outside try using a treadmill to walk inside the house or the gym. I know walking on a treadmill may not be as much fun as walking outside, but tit will have to do do if it is nasty and rainy out.

If doing it at home, you can set up a TV in the room with you or listen to youripod or favorite CD. Lighting up some candles and setting them around the room while you are walking on your treadmill can relax you by and the candles always make things look and feel more cozy than it really is.

On the other hand, you, like me, may live in hot climate. Moreover, chances are that on hot days you may get lots of smog and then walking can be bad for your health. Again it is important to make sure you do not walk on a major thoroughfare for the same reason.

Before you start walking, you may want to check the weather. Use your weather channel, the Internet or radio to check the weather. If the weather is good, you can start walking to fitness. If the weather is bad, you can plan walking to fitness indoors.

If you have a treadmill, turn on the television and watch your favorite program while you walk to fitness. If you do not have a treadmill, try walking around the house. Take a little extra time and wash clothes, clean the kitchen or do something active. When you are active, it reduces your risk of disease.

Of course if you work in a large office you can walk in corridors of the office and remembers walking up and down the stairs is a wonderful exercise and burns even more calories while keeping you fit.

How to walk in the winter:

In the winter, you want 10 minutes at most to warm up before walking to fitness.
In cold weather, your body needs addition time to prepare. If you intend to walk outdoors, be sure to wear warm attire to avoid frost bites. You want to wear a face mask and scarf to protect your mouth and nose. You want to wear proper shoes also to avoid falls. If the weather is very bad, you may want to walk to fitness indoors. Don't take the risk of freeze bites.

Turn Your Iphone Pics Into Watercolor Masterpieces With This Smart App

Penglins. Image: Flickr, umezy12 Penguins. Image: Flickr, umezy12 With Waterlogue, Balestrieri and Clair tried to write algorithms that approached images as a human would. Where older filters dumbly processed images at smallest unit of digital scalethe pixelWaterlogue instead starts by distilling them into lines. It then boils those down to the ones that a person might actually drawsimplifying the image from a thousand tiny lines, say, to the hundred most essential ones. Basically, through the process of tweaking the software, I would eliminate or reduce any marks that didnt look like they were made by a sane individual, Balestrieri says. Next, the app simulates the actual painting process. Instead of transforming the whole thing in a single pass, it creates each painting layer by layer, as a real artist would. The app simulates the spreading and bleeding of the pigment onto the canvas, with dedicated properties for the virtual paper, the pigment, the brushes, the water and so on.

Food Bloggers Create A Recipe For Philanthropy In South Africa

Denis Farrell/AP/File Enlarge For many children in South Africa , a daily meal served in school is the only meal they will eat all day. In a country where 65 percentof children live in poverty and approximately 1.9 million of the countrys orphaned children have lost one or both parents as a result of HIV and AIDS, a generation of children have become heads of household, or are forced to strain modest government stipends allotted to their grandparents. At the end of the day, there are few resources left for food. Food Tank is a think tank focused on a feeding the world better. We conduct research and cultivate networks of people, organizations, and content to push for food system change. Recent posts RECOMMENDED: GMO, Organic, and seven other food labels you should know When children are hungry, they cant concentrate and their potential is stifled. Providing a daily meal at school encourages attendance and helps ensure that each child reaches their potential. The Lunchbox Fund, a South African NGO that fosters education through nutrition by providing a daily, nourishing meal to underserved schoolchildren, has stepped in to fill the gap left by the South African government, which can only provide school meals to 8 million of the countrys 12 million school-age children. By partnering with local organizations, recruiting grandmothers to cook and deliver meals, and monitoring attendance, The Lunchbox Fund is systematically working to help a generation of children lift themselves out of poverty and become nourished body and mind. In an effort to feed 100 schoolchildren a daily meal for one year, more than 100 food bloggers around the world launched a fundraising campaign today to support The Lunchbox Fund, and are aiming to raise US$5,000 to accomplish this.
