Taking a walk when you hear bad news or have been cooped up with someone sick is extremely therapeutic. Having a standing walk date with a friend is delightful and intimate. Some people like to talk things through with others when they're having difficulty, but often ... [they'd] rather walk alone. Walking gives ... [us] the solitude to work things out for ... [ourselves]. ... take a small pocket notebook ... [along] and write down ideas and images that float to mind while ... walking. This helps ... keep a healthy state of mind.
