Walk to Unblock!

THE NEW YORKER RECENTLY PUBLISHED AN ARTICLE titled, “Why Walking Helps Us Think.” Writer Ferris Jabr includes lots of historical evidence and fascinating facts to support this premise.

Time and again, when my writing gets stalled or my thinking gets stuck, my best solution is to don a pair of walking shoes and hit the trail. It’s almost crazy how reliable this method of unknotting mental knots has proven—for me, and for many, many others. In fact, a daily walk—on one’s own—is part of Julia Cameron’s Artist’s Way prescription for enhancing personal creativity.

Solvitur ambulando, St. Augustine said. “It is solved by walking.”
