Democ­racy in walk­ing

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS - By Salah Al-Sayer

Doc­tors usu­ally ad­vise peo­ple to walk in the early hours of the morn­ing and get ex­posed to sun­rays to en­able their bod­ies to pro­duce vi­ta­min D, which helps boost the amount of phos­pho­rus and cal­cium in their bod­ies. Walk­ing in open ar­eas such as beaches and parks helps peo­ple breathe fresh air, which is use­ful for the res­pi­ra­tory sys­tem. In ad­di­tion, walk­ing helps mus­cles and joints in gen­eral, which is good for health in this mod­ern age when peo­ple are sur­rounded by ob­jects that have in­creased seden­tary life­styles and pro­moted neg­a­tive feel­ings.

Early morn­ing walk­ing lovers also get an­other ben­e­fit they will not get else­where or at other times - pos­i­tive en­ergy. All walk­ers, re­gard­less of age or gen­der, who are keen on get­ting up early to walk out­doors, surely have pos­i­tive feel­ings and be­lieve in hope, de­ter­mi­na­tion and per­sis­tence. There­fore, a walk­ing track is al­ways full of pos­i­tive peo­ple ex­chang­ing pos­i­tive en­ergy silently and in­ten­tion­ally.

Walk­ing tracks are also full of democ­racy that can­not be found through bal­lot boxes, be­cause there, ev­ery­body is equal and shares this pas­sion. One can find young and old peo­ple in­clud­ing doc­tors and pa­tients, be­liev­ers and non­be­liev­ers, and rich and poor.

Walk­ing also pro­vides good di­ver­sity in the out­fits walk­ers wear, the dis­tances they walk, when they start and fin­ish and the calo­ries they lose. They also walk for var­i­ous rea­sons. Some walk as part of a diet regime to lose weight. Oth­ers walk to fight di­a­betes or strengthen their mus­cles. A preg­nant woman walks to make de­liv­ery eas­ier, while oth­ers jog to clear their minds. So, there are many walk­ing pat­terns on the very same track! A cit­i­zen told po­lice he robbed a bedoon be­cause he was in need of money. The bedoon said the two have a busi­ness re­la­tion­ship and he knows him, adding the rob­bery was by force. Mean­while, two uniden­ti­fied per­sons were charged with armed rob­bery and pos­ing as de­tec­tives, af­ter a Bangladeshi told Nu­gra po­lice he was robbed while walk­ing by the two, who took his wal­let with KD 3 and his civil ID, along with his iPhone. Separately, three men scaled the fence of Taima po­lice sta­tion to steal a mo­tor­cy­cle. A security source said security cam­eras showed three per­sons en­ter­ing the po­lice sta­tion area. Po­lice were able to ar­rest two of them, while the third is at large. — Al-An­baa
