Go-To Walking Gear | STAINED COUTURE

A few years ago, I became an avid walker. I was so into walking almost everyday, that there were some almost 100 degree days that I was out there. To be transparent, I started walking for mental purposes. I was deep in my feelings about things going on in my life at the time, which included learning my new normal after COVID. I had read that taking walks was a good way to help improve your mood and health, of course.

Recently, I’ve been craving daily walks again, but this time to help with my help. I’ve been so stressed and it’s beginning to affect my health.  Therefore, I started going on more walks, with the intent to make them daily; weather permitting.

I need my bluetooth headphones when I go walking, because helps me zone out. I zone out so much that I end walking longer than I think. Personally, I prefer headphones over earbuds, because it gives off the impression that I don’t want to be disturbed. This is especially needed when I decide to stop by the gym in my apartments.

Since I do walk with earphones, my best friend made sure I always have a safety device. I have a sound making device that’s also a stun gun. Plus, it’s cute! 😀

It should be obvious that you need good pair of shoes when walking. I have a pair that I walk and live in, but they are getting too big for me as I’ve lost weight. I’ve been doing research and the Brooks Ghost 15 seem like a winner for me and my needs.

When I first started at my current job, I use to have to be on my feet for extended time. This caused me to start experiencing pain in my feet and need arch support. I wear arch support bands, but  insoles for arch support is better for when I’m walking. Insoles for arch support not only support my arches, but help keep me balanced when I walk on uneven terrain.

One of the best purchases I made recently was this flat fanny pack. It lays flat against my waist, but holds my keys, safety device, and my ID. I also use this as a crossbody on days when I need to run errands, but it’s mostly used for carrying stuff when I’m on my hot girl walk. Love it so much!
