'Walking is man's best medicine.' - HippocratesWalk invites you to explore the benefits to be gained from the simple act of walking and spending time outdoors. A great natural way to boost your mind, body and soul, walking is simple and free. Without the need for specialist equipment or personal training, it is just about the easiest way to get more active, lose weight and become healthier. And it can be done anywhere. Travelling by foot is also meditative as it fosters a slowness of thought, as you become more aware of your surroundings. Drawing on Sholto Radford's extensive work with mindfulness-based practices, this book offers expert guidance and practical exercises to cultivate emotional and physical wellbeing. Learn how to change your speed, shift your perspective and discover the pure joy of walking.
