Why Walking Matters—Now More Than Ever (essay in the Wall St Journal)

I have an essay up on today’s Wall Street Journal.

Snippet:

Why does walking make us feel good? We all know that a satisfying stroll changes our outlook. Perhaps we realize it all the more today, when so many of us are hunkered down and this simple activity is a challenge. But walking is especially important now, with gyms and team sports shut down. It’s one of our few accessible forms of exercise but also one that is directly affected by stay-at-home orders. What we usually do automatically now takes serious intention.

In Praise of Walking also featured in this essay in the Washington Post by Erin Sagen.
