When I have a problem that I’m chewing on, I’ll go for a walk. Typically by the end of a walk I’ve cracked the problem or figured out what the next step to getting to the solution is. Its simple and it works. Stanfords recent study mirrors this by showing that walking increases creativity.
A person walking indoors – on a treadmill in a room facing a blank wall – or walking outdoors in the fresh air produced twice as many creative responses compared to a person sitting down, one of the experiments found.
Crazy – even walking indoors in a room with a blank wall, aka no external stimulus other than walking did it.
I’m also reading Daily Rituals of Artists, one thing that stood out for me is how much time they dedicated to just going on a walk. Often up to 90 minutes giving their mind time to roam, to relax and enjoy life.
Steve Jobs was noted to instead of having a meeting go on a walk with whoever he was meeting with.
Why? That’s yet to be fully established – and as to whether other physical activities increase or decrease the effect has yet to be proven.
But that’s enough for me. Get some more walking into your daily rhythm. I’m definitely going to.
