Walkers and Thinkers

Walking and thinking isn’t new. Humans have been thinking on their feet since Aristotle. It’s just something we’ve tended to forget about. We’ve all got into being busy and speedy. But taking our brains for a walk really works. All the greats were in on it: Dickens, Byron, Wordsworth, Jobs. Fresh air in. Fresh ideas out. You never know where it can lead... simply it started with a walk.

Excellent reasons for going outside and taking your brain on a walk and excellent actions from W+K... 'So if the enemy isn’t hard work (and long hours) what is it? It’s pretty simple, the enemy is modern life.
