Why Walking Matters—Now More Than Ever

Shane O’Mara at The Wall Street Journal:

Walking is essential to our nature. Walking upright is one thing that sets humans apart; no other animal does it, but we can’t do without it.

Walking helps the body heal, helps the brain function. Walking, rather than seeing, is how we build metal maps of our environment. And walking protects us against depression.

I walk 3+ miles daily.
