It is not your gait, it is where you take it

Often, it is not your gait, it is where you take it and make use of it.

“Specifically, the study finds that people who walked for 90 minutes in a natural area, as opposed to participants who walked in a high-traffic urban setting, showed decreased activity in a region of the brain associated with a key factor in depression.”
In the next few decades it is projected that 70% of the world’s population will exist in urban settings. Urbanization and disconnection from nature have grown dramatically, as have mental disorders such as depression.
“In fact, city dwellers have a 20 percent higher risk of anxiety disorders and a 40 percent higher risk of mood disorders as compared to people in rural areas. People born and raised in cities are twice as likely to develop schizophrenia.”
