The truth is that Homo sapiens have always been walkers; it’s an integral part of our evolution; it’s a key to what makes us human; the relationship between walking and creative thinking is one of the reasons why human beings have become the dominant species on earth. And I believe this connection between thinking and movement is one of the main reasons why so many more people are choosing to go for a walk in this time of great stress.Now, slowly and tentatively, we’re coming out of the heightened fear that accompanied the rise of COVID-19 infections and resulted into a long period of uncertainty around what happens before a vaccine is created. People are tense and we need strategies to help come to terms with the ambiguity of the moment we’re in. I believe, more than ever, that walking can assist people in adapting to this difficult situation and that’s because:Walking gives us a sense of control: In uncertain times we want control over our lives. For four million years, as ancestors of nomads, the way we traditionally have done that is to go for a walk. Walking was how we gathered food and water and gained intimate knowledge of our environment that let us manage it for our own benefit. Even now, by going for a walk, we trigger those same deep-seeded feelings. By putting one foot in front of the other we become active, we are not passively waiting for things to happen to us, we are initiating action and making the world work for us. Walking is the simplest way to achieve that feeling of control.By: Narayani Ganesh(Concluded)
