So, I been living in Florida for 1 year now. I must say, I do enjoy the view and the nice weather during my walks with Wes to his school. I also met a lot of nice stick walkers (people that carries a stick while walking). I always wondered, why are all these people carrying a stick? So, I did some digging into this stick. What came undug, was even though walking with a stick has a lot of benefits (see list of benefits below)
List of benefits from walking with a stick.
- Help Reduce Pressure on aching joints,ankles,feet, knees and hips.
- Balance and stability on uneven trails.
- Boost and power while going up a steep inclines.
Protection was the main reason why most stick walkers in my area carries a stick. It can be used to fend off unwanted pets, intruders or wild animals.
I thought this was a need to know info since there are lots of pets and wild animals here. I still can never remember to carry a stick.
Are you a stick walker? Why do you walk with a stick? Would love to hear from you.
