“All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.”
I read this book about the daily rituals--it’s called Daily Rituals--of the history’s greatest artists, composers, writers, and thinkers.
One thing that was common many routines was daily walking. Beethoven walked everyday after his midday dinner “which would occupy much of the rest of the afternoon.”
Soren Kierkegaard, the Danish Philosopher, spent most of his day writing and walking. From the book, “The walks were where he had his best ideas, and sometimes he would be in such a hurry to get them down that, returning home, he would write standing up before his desk, still wearing his hat and gripping his walking stick or umbrella.”
Since many of the greatest minds in history used walking as a part of their daily routines, so should you and I.
I walk every morning as a part of my morning routine while listening to Tony Robbins “Personal Power” (highly recommended). Since I started this routine, my day just doesn't feel right if I skip it.
