Walking is a wonderful “Flow” activity providing it is done for its own enjoyment rather than for other reasons…the flowing movement and energy of our body finds the same energy and rhythm in our mind …and it relates to the openness and energy of the environment.

It is not talking but walking that will bring us to heaven. – Matthew Henry

All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking. – Friedrich Nietzsche

I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded
to stay out until sundown:
for going out, I found, was really going in.” – John Muir

The rhythm of walking generates a kind of rhythm of thinking,and the passage through a landscape echoes or stimulates the passage through a series of thoughts. The creates an odd consonance between internal and external passage, one that suggests that the mind is also a landscape of sorts and that walking is one way to traverse it. A new thought often seems like a feature of the landscape that was there all along, as though thinking were traveling rather than making.” – Rebecca Solnit

I think that the moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow. – Henry David Thoreau

If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk. – Raymond Inmon
