Until last night I had forgotten how mentally refreshing a walk can be. I walk every day – to the train, to work, to get food, back to the train, to the bar… But last night I walked with no destination. I slowed my freakishly fast-paced stride down to a calm stroll and realized that alone helped me relax.
I’m all about moments of mental clarity, whether they last or not. While I was walking everything seemed to make sense. Nothing mattered more than it should, nothing less than it was.
I know it’s scientifically proven that exercise releases endorphins and brings you a mental high. But it’s nice to know even a slow walk has the power to do the same.
Take advantage of the summer weather and get outside!
