Did you ever notice that you often come up with the most creative ideas not while you’re sitting down in your desk? Often, stream of ideas come to you when you’re in the middle of a walk, right?
Maybe that’s why many of the most brilliant people in the world history always made time for walk breaks. Beethoven took long walks after lunch with his pencil and paper to write down inspirations as they hit him. Tchaikovsky took full two-hour walk every day. Charles Dickens devoted three hours every afternoon for a relaxing walk. And how many long walks did Charles Darwin manage to squeeze into a day? Three!
Turns out walking is proven by science to boost your creativity. As little as 5-minute walk every hour in the workday will make you not only more creative, but also be in a better mood, less tired, and less likely to have unhealthy food craving.
Sounds good right? Time for walk breaks, people! Tell me, how are you going to do yours?
