The Best Things To Listen To When Going For A Walk

Choose wisely to make your walks more enjoyable

listening when walking

Going for a walk is a great form of exercise. It's one of my favorite activities, personally.

It gets even better when you have the right soundtrack. While that's different for everyone, the main buckets to choose from are the same. Here's where you can get inspired and have a productive walk:

1. Natural Sound

Walking through a nature trail

The first one is simple... Nothing at all! Nature itself has a soundtrack, especially if you're in a nature-filled environment with birds and wildlife. But even an urban setting has its own unique sounds that can be pleasing to take in if you give them a chance. So try removing the headphones and take it all in.

2. Apple Fitness+ Guides

Apple Fitness+ Guides

Save yourself the $9.99 per month and start with a free trial first. If you don't like it, cancel. But if you do give it a go, you'll find it's wonderful to have a wide range of celebrities going for a walk with you. They're specifically designed for meditated, guided walks, and you get to know them a bit better too, including their favorite music which is played.

3. Your Favorite Music



Whether it's a series of playlists that you cycle through, one big gigantic playlist you have on shuffle, or a radio-type offering with similar music to your favorite tastes, there's nothing like good ol' Spotify (or a service like it) to listen to your favorite music as you walk. Something come on that you're not in the mood for? Simply: Next.

4. Podcasts or Audio Books



There are TONS to choose from, and they'll make you feel well-informed or entertained while on the go. Here are some podcast options. You can also explore the offerings in your favorite audio app. Look for content based on your interests.

5. The Radio


Yes, the good ol' fashioned radio. Have a number of stations available to you on the go with an app like Audacy or pull up your favorite station's website & see how you can listen while going for a walk.

There might be other soundtracks, but the five options above are the best tried-and-true audio companions for a walk. Give them each a try and stick with what works for you!

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
