Walking gets the blood flowing and the muscles moving. There is physicality to it. You can feel the rhythm in your feet, in your breath. When I am facing a problem I find that walking helps me process and work it out. It taps me into my inner wisdom.
Walking is great for finding inspiration too. The word inspiration comes from the Latin, inspirare – to breathe into. Going for walks helps us to “breathe in" the world around us. We can listen to the cars whirring down the road, the birds singing, the whispering of leaves on the trees. Feel the breeze caress your skin. Stop and smell the roses, or honeysuckle, or peonies. We can watch life in action, and connect with it. It fills our well. It renews us. It inspires.
Allow life to nourish your writing and writing to nourish your life.
Feel free to share your writer's walk and I will post it here.
