Once a week I take my grandson to school which involves a 10 minute walk.
Along the way we are overtaken by scooters, parents talking to each other and parents often on their phones. I always try to make the walk of some interest, there is always something happening around you. It could be the weather, a plane in the sky, the moon still out in the early morning, birds, trees coming into blossom, catkins, leaves falling (depending on the season). It may even be an interesting vehicle on the road. There is always something to learn and it is continually changing.
Many people walk around with no awareness of what is going on in the world. Life is happening all around and we need to be observant otherwise it will pass us by.
