July 27 is Take Your Pants For A Walk Day. Because the purpose or the origins of the day are unknown, we can only surmise that the unofficial holiday encourages people (in pants) to go out for a walk and enjoy the many benefits that walking provides.
Studies have shown that walking at a medium to fast pace regularly can have tremendous mental and physical health benefits. Walking not only helps burn calories, but can also boost a person’s mood and can help treat depression. It also reduces the risk of a variety of health problems including obesity, diabetes and heart diseases.
How to Celebrate?
- Get up early in the morning, wear your pants and go for a walk!
- Walking with weights is known to increase the effectiveness of the exercise. SO why not fill a bag with all your pants and literally take them for a walk?
Did You Know…
… that the oldest historical records of pants dates back to 10th BCE China?
