About World Sauntering Day
When is World Sauntering Day? This holiday is always celebrated on June 19
World Sauntering Day is a day to saunter here and there, wherever you go. On this June 19 holiday practice your sauntering technique.
You can spend your life walking through life, jogging through life, or being dragged through life. But, life is far more enjoyable, if you saunter through it. It’s doubly true if you saunter with a friend or loved one.
Sauntering is not an ordinary walk, jog, trot, or run. Rather, it is a form of strolling at a leisurely pace. Sauntering is a very casual, yet stylish, form of movement from point A to Point B. The dictionary defines sauntering as walking along slowly, happily, and aimlessly. Now, doesn’t this sound like a grand way to get around on this sunny and warm June 19 holiday?
