Amount of Walking as a Barometer to health

In Self Improvement, Short Thoughts

I’ve been tracking the amount of walking I’ve done each day via my smartphone, and it has given me some interesting insights and understanding about my health.

The months where I’ve felt more fulfilled professionally, where I’ve been healthier and where I’ve generally achieved more, are the same months where I’ve walked a lot, sometimes averaging seven or more kilometers per day, instead of my usual one to two kilometers per day average.

This is interesting, because obviously walking takes up a fair amount of time, and yet I appear to do more in the months where I walk more.

I have heard that walking had numerous psychological benefits, so that may well play a part.
