When I am traveling in a carriage, or walking after a good meal, or during the night when I cannot sleep; it is on such occasions that ideas flow best and most abundantly.
Taking a walk might be one of the most therapeutic and galvanizing opportunities in life. So many of the great minds reference it in their statements…
Today’s quote is one from Mozart. Steve Jobs would always take a walk with somebody rather than sit down and take a meeting. Beethoven and Newton both used to go for long walks to sort out their minds and da Vinci would disappear into the wide open areas of Tuscany trying to his inspiration.
There is something that happens about a half mile into the walk… your body forgets the exercise and gets lost in thought. How one channels that experience can be catalytic to creativity and advanced thinking.
Given that so many forms of our diversion have been minimized during the pandemic, going deeper into the creative chambers of one’s brain might be one of the greatest escapes of all.
So the next time somebody tells you to “go take a hike,” thank them and take their advice😊
Wishing you a very ✨creative✨
