Happy National Father Daughter Take a Walk Day!
National Father Daughter Take a Walk Day is observed annually on July 7th. This day promotes the benefits of family bonding time between fathers and daughters as well as the benefits of physical activity.
The memories made during your time together will stay with you forever. During the summer season, there are many incredible places to walk and enjoy nature as you spend time talking, laughing, and bonding. While taking a stroll, cherish the time spent together. Your child will value the gift of the time you give no matter how old they are.
As you’re walking, you will also be setting an excellent example of a healthy lifestyle – another valuable gift. Walking is one of the best exercises and the easiest to incorporate. Walking is something the whole family can do together, so don’t be surprised when the rest of the family asks to go for walks, too.
Father-daughter walks can be as long or short as you like. Walks around your neighborhood help increase interactions with neighbors. Another great place for walks is along local walking or hiking trails. These well-marked trails offer a little bit of nature while keeping from getting lost. During inclement weather, indoor walking tracks or large indoor spaces could take the place of the sunshine and parks.
It is especially important now for daughters to take a walk with their older fathers. It has been hard on seniors to be socially distanced from their families. As long as applicable safety guidelines are being followed, going for a nice stroll through the park should be a lovely time! Being around people you love boosts the immune system and is actually GOOD for your health! Take a walk with your father, for his health and his!
