Gait, walking.:Why movement matters.

Gait … . walking.
Movement is medicine, nothing new.
A recent study out of Stanford University found that walking for at least 10 minutes enhances a person’s creativity.
” Dr. John Ratey states, “when his patients stopped exercising, many not only became depressed, by some actually developed adult ADHD.”

Some famous scientists were known to walk to stimulate creativity.
“Ratey is especially a fan of walking with no purpose. He says that’s when the brain can pick up more information and walking can allow one’s thoughts to come and go in a way they don’t when a person is focusing on something specific.“When we’re walking,” says Ratey, “We are stimulating the brain in many, many ways.”“
