Nathan loves to walk…when he’s at church, at the library, park, and especially when he’s watching buses or trains. So, we take advantage of that love and give him frequent opportunities to do just that–walk!
Studies show that even light walking has a positive effect on feelings of well-being, and increases feelings of calm. And doing something you love also helps, because you look forward to doing it.
