I admit it. I was one of those people making fun of all the Pokemon Go-ers. It seemed like everywhere I went people were mindlessly walking around, staring at their phone, looking for something. It isn’t all that different than what you normally see but people were doing this walking in areas of the park where you normally don’t run across this. I knew the game was out there but I really didn’t understand the whole concept because I never was playing, and still don’t!
I believe the general idea is to search out these characters and gather them up. There may be more to it but that is what I get out of it. I thought it was a silly game, which in turn was why I thought the people playing it were silly too! It wasn’t until I read someones post on FB that made me think and change my mind. This person wrote that instead of sitting in front of the TV in the evening, they were up and walking around, meeting people! This is exactly what we need to be doing! Get active and do something simple like walk! That is what can change the health outlook of this country. The only drawback, as I can see, is when I hear stories of people getting hurt because they aren’t paying attention to where they are walking. That is important too people!
So download that app and get moving to a healthy beginning!
Until next time…
