is it worth the time?

A month or so ago , a friend was astounded that I sometimes walk to and from work . :How long does it take”? she asked. When I said it was an hour or so each way – she waeven more astonished and wondered if it was ‘a lot of time to spend just walking’.

I did not get to do my more usual two hour walk on Tuesday. A doctor’s appointment sort of got in the way. That ate up one of my hours. And I ended up with an extra hour at home . I watched an episode of Glee, swept the kitchen floor , did the dishes , threw in a load of laundry, and poked at my computer. So not a waste of time, but I’m not sure it was time well spent. I didn’t waste time – but it wasn’t the same as good exercise and thinking time.

As I said to my friend who thought an hour of walking was a long time – there are better and worse ways to spend your time. Laundry and dihes are not the best ways to spend time

    Walking to work makes work and the place very different than driving.
