Walk Around Things Day is an annual American holiday that is dedicated to extra thought and doubt before making a decision. Walking around a problem can be really helpful when making a very important decision, because you need to think through everything to the smallest detail to be as sure as possible of success. The holiday is celebrated on April 4.
The history of Walk Around Things Day is not known. The expression reflected in the name of the holiday is taken both figuratively and literally. The first refers to doubts and unnecessary reflection. The stereotype of brave and confident people who do not waste extra time in thinking and act at once plays a big role here! However, this approach is completely wrong. Decision-making is a complex process that involves reflection and analysis of the current situation, otherwise it is very easy to make a mistake.
If taken literally, the holiday takes on a jocular character. In that case, its meaning is to walk around certain objects. For example, walk the same route several times or walk around the house!
- The average person walks 3,000 to 5,000 steps a day. The number of steps is largely determined by lifestyle and work.
- Sufficient motor activity per day (about 8 thousand steps) reduces the risk of cardiovascular and musculoskeletal problems by 60%.
