    Hello, Steve.nabi.
    I'd go for "it".

    My version is:
    "I love going for long walks on Sundays because it makes me feel so close to nature."

    Please read the sentence below.
    (It's rather a weird sentence, but it will shed some light on your query.)

    "I love breaking windows. It makes me excited."

    What makes the speaker excited?
    Breaking windows(='it', not 'they') makes him/her excited, doesn't it?

    I hope you'll understand what I mean.

    Both need a semicolon instead of a comma and both need a full stop at the end.

    You must get into the habit of ending every sentence with a punctuation mark.

    Thank you for your perfect answer (Actually I didn't know usage of ;)


    But Just now a question occurred to me ; Is it right to say "In Sundays" instead of "On Sundays" ?

    The reason is that it is flagged as a new post, so we think you might have a follow-up question or something to add. Those of us with slow internet connections and/or old computers have to waste valuable time waiting for it to appear.

    Thank you.

    "Cannot" is one word. We put a space after a comma.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
