Walking is one of the healthiest and simplest exercises. When you walk briskly, you breathe more deeply and your mind clears. Your brain produces healthy biochemicals that make you feel better and enable you to think with greater clarity. Walking stimulates creativity, and you might think of better ways to reach goals. Many people take walks to come up with solutions to challenges.
You can utilize your walking time to increase your level of joy. As you walk briskly, repeat to yourself, “With each and every step, I am feeling more and more joy. With each and every step, I am feeling more and more joy. With each and every step, I am feeling more and more joy.”
((Life is Now: Creating moments of joy, courage, kindness, and serenity, p. 141))
