This short, enthusiastic guide extolling walking’s mental and physical benefits, and will motivate you to get outside and move, step by step, all year. With his extraordinary charm and sense of wonder, bringing together science, philosophy and art, Carlo Rovelli unravels this mystery. An impressively readable book, this is a flexible and quick-paced non-fiction on the many methods and benefits of walking. Inspirational, backed by science, illuminated with human anecdote, and bolstered with how-to tips, 52 Ways to Walk will inspire, challenge, support, and encourage everyone to become more ambitious with their walking practice, revealing how walking may be the best-kept secret of the supremely healthy and happy, the creative and well-slept--those with the best posture and sharpest memories. Walking lowers your risk of diabetes, heart disease, and osteoporosis, improves cholesterol levels, helps you build strong bones and slows any bone loss as you age.

this one focuses on the different ways you can incorporate more walking to your life and why you should. I ramble/walk often and am currently completing the London Outer Orbital Pathway (LOOP), over 150 miles of walking (split into 24 sections) encircling London through its green belt.Full of clearly presented science, nuggets of history and infectious enthusiasm for being out in the world and simply walking as a way of tackling so many of our ills. This would be a great book for a new walker who needs motivation to get going or for someone who just wants to up their walking game. The book outlines 52 ways to walk, one for each week from January through to December, and all of which can be done by anyone, anywhere. This book is about how walking is connected both to old wisdom and new scientific frontiers of discovery … If you’re not a habitual walker this book will give you good reasons why you should get started and, if you are experienced, ways to keep it fresh … Fascinating. She incorporates moon phases, singing, drawing, walking backwards, walking alone, walking with a friend.

Even a 10 minute walk after dinner can lower blood glucose spikes resulting from over eating and it will also help you to sleep. Time a 12 minute walk from your front door, and take it as often as you can (without overthinking or overcomplicating anything). It’s suggested that we sing or dance while we walk but I won’t be doing that any time soon, even if it’s only my dog that can hear me!Or sing while you climb up hill, giving your mind something to concentrate on, and your breathing to become more regular. s obzirom na sumanutu kilometražu koju svakodnevno prolazim hodajući, nadala sam se da će mi ovaj priručnik unijeti dašak svježine dok, eto, prolazim manje-više istim rutama i na to trošim (ili, ako obrneš: ulažem) sate i sate. It is a revelatory and informative handbook for anyone stuck in a walking rut, curious about the lesser-known benefits of walking or merely in need of some on-foot novelty and adventure.

But I did spend most of the time listening to this book pacing up and down my hallway/kitchen, and am so very much looking forward to being able to get out walking again very soon! I bought her a copy for her birthday and she decided to start with the week after her birthday, which I believe was the walk and draw week.But many of us are stuck in our walking routines, forever walking in the same place, in the same way, for the same time, with the same people. Most woo walk that I actually want to try: Walk with negative air ions, which can be found near waterfalls, other flowing water, in the mountains, on a misty spring morning, or after a downpour. There is a chapter on breathing through your nose as you walk where the author seems to hint that this filters out coronaviruses due to a specific chemical that it released. Our choice of location, time, direction, duration, walking companion and gait, as well as the weather we opt to walk in, can transform our daily stroll. After reading this book, I’ll probably walk in the rain more, walk more errands, and walk while listening to the soundscape.

And on a related note, what is it with middle-aged women and their obsessive desire to do silly little dances in public whenever humanly possible?

I've been a serious walker for years and I have already put into practice many of the author's suggestions. Things I liked about this book: So many ideas to think about walking in a new way and to keep the simple act of walking from being boring. It's light but it's also serious because walking is, after all, one of the first things we're praised for and something that's critical to our health and mental well being. I wasn't sure what I was going to get with this book, although it shouldn't have been a surprise given the rather informative title, but it was so unexpectedly delightful!
