The Positive Effect of Walking on Creative Thinking


A recent study developed in Stanford University demonstrate that walking boosts creative ideation in real-time and shortly after.

Walking opens up the free flow of ideas, and it is a simple and robust solution to the goals of increasing creativity and increasing physical activity. The effect is not simply due to the perceptual stimulation of moving through an environment, but rather it is due to walking.

Walking improves the generation of novel yet appropriate ideas, and the effect even extends to when people sit down to do their creative work shortly after.

Whatever industry or activity you work on, creativity has a number of positive benefits, specially in a world where is becoming harder and harder to innovate and differentiate. From another angle, the attempts to improve creatively often involve training, shifting perspective or trying something counterintuitive but not always succeed to make people to “be more creative”.

Now imagine, rather than trying to improve people´s command of the creative process, we simply walk at a natural pace.

That is exactly what Walking Mentorship does, leveraging on such simple and healthy approach not only to enhance our creative output, but also to help us disconnect from noise and stress, facilitating a life changing experience that you might don´t want to delay.
