One of the easiest ways to increase your activity level and get the chance to catch up at the same time is to head to your favorite scenic spot for a walk. For Hitha of Hitha on The Go and her mother, that's Central Park. "I treasure my Central Park walks because of my mom," says Hitha. "Growing up, she would drag me from the couch and make me walk with her in the evenings, walking to the end of our mile-long street and back. I would protest at first, but I'd always return feeling better — physically, emotionally, and mentally."
Most weekends, Hitha continues the ritual with her three-year-old son, but she still holds a special place for walks with her mom, especially on Mother's Day: "Our path may have changed, but the tradition remains the same."
What she's wearing: tank top ($40), capris ($48), hat ($25), and bomber jacket ($89)
What mom's wearing: jacket ($89), shirt ($35), and drawstring pants ($45)
