52 Ways to Walk

by Annabel Streets

ISBN: 9781526656445

'Fascinating ... Connected both to old wisdom and new scientific frontiers of discovery' Lauren Laverne

'We can all learn something from 52 Ways to Walk. I know I can.' Michael Ball, BBC Radio 2

Walking strengthens our bodies, calms our minds and lifts our spirits. But it does so much more than this. Our vision, hearing, respiration, sleep, cognition, memory, blood pressure, sense of smell and balance are all enhanced by how we walk. For instance:

* Walking in cold weather burns extra fat and builds more muscle.
* Walking alone strengthens our memories.
* Walking in woodland helps us sleep.
* And there's nothing more restorative than a romantic nighthike.

Our choice of location, time, direction, duration, walking companion and gait, as well as the weather we opt to walk in, can transform our daily stroll. Here, Annabel Streets shares the thrill of 52 different ways to walk, explaining the latest science behind each one, and providing practical tips for making the most of your daily steps.

52 Ways to Walk is a revelatory and informative handbook for anyone stuck in a walking rut, curious about the lesser-known benefits of walking or merely in need of some on-foot novelty and adventure.
Beautifully designed and pocket-sized, 52 Ways to Walk is a love letter to walking.
