Walk: The Path to a Slower, More Mindful Life
"Walking is man's best medicine." - Hippocrates
Walk invites you to explore the benefits that the simple act of walking and spending time in the outdoors can bring to our sense of wellbeing and meaning. Simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight, and become healthier; walking is a great natural way to boost your mind, body, and soul. Traveling by foot is meditative as it fosters a slowness of thought as you become more aware of your surroundings. Learn how to change your speed, embrace the silence, and unearth the joy of walking without going anywhere through the chapters of this book.
Drawing on Sholto's extensive experience working with mindfulness-based practices, this book offers guidance and practical exercises for cultivating present moment awareness and bringing curiosity to the nature of our experience and the world around us. Walk aims to inspire you to move beyond the pages, step outside, and awaken your senses as you make walking part of your life.
