Walking can even boost your creative juices!
Hands up who sometimes (or more often than not) struggles with creativity? Some of us are born with an amazingly creative mind, whilst the rest of us struggle to think of what words to write in the birthday and ‘sorry you’re leaving’ cards that get passed around the office on a regular basis. (There’s nothing more pressurised than someone from accounts standing over us whilst we think of something witty to say, is there?)
But take up regular daily walks, and that could all change. There’s little doubt that going for a walk helps us to clear our minds, but researchers now say that walking can also make us think up new and creative ideas.
They put this down to walking opening up a freer flow of ideas, so next time you need to sign a card, talk a walk first!
