  • Walking is the best exercise there is!
  • I would say the more a person walks the better, and it is better to measure the amount one walks not by distance but by time.

active coping; cognitive functions; creativity; mental health; moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity (MVPA); personal growth; psychological wellbeing; regular physical exercise; state anxiety; working memory

This study showed that moderate to vigorous exercise enhances the benefits of walking

Regular Moderate- to Vigorous-Intensity Physical Activity Rather Than Walking Is Associated with Enhanced Cognitive Functions and Mental Health in Young Adults



Human health benefits associated with the immersion in nature continue to be currently researched. Longitudinal research, conducted worldwide, is needed to produce new evidence of the relationships associated with nature therapy and clinical therapeutic effects. Nature therapy as a health-promotion method and potential universal health model is implicated for the reduction of reported modern-day "stress-state" and "technostress.".



This study aimed to clarify the psychological benefits of brief walks through forest areas. In addition, we aimed to examine the associations between psychological responses and trait anxiety levels. Five-hundred-and-eighty-five participants (mean age, 21.7 ± 1.6 years) were instructed to walk predetermined courses through forest (test) and city (control) areas for 15 min. The Profile of Mood State (POMS) questionnaire and State-Trait Anxiety Inventory were used to assess participants' psychological responses and trait anxiety levels, respectively. The results revealed that walking through forest areas decreased the negative moods of "depression-dejection", "tension-anxiety", "anger-hostility", "fatigue", and "confusion" and improved the participants' positive mood of "vigor" compared with walking through city areas. Furthermore, a significant correlation was found between participants' trait anxiety levels and their changes in the subscale of "depression-dejection" of POMS after walking through forest areas. A more effective reduction in the feeling of "depression-dejection" after walking through forest areas was observed for participants with high trait anxiety levels than for those with normal and low trait anxiety levels.

  • Moderate to vigorous walking has been shown to be much more valuable to the body than low-intensity walking.
  • It is good to periodically walk for over 2 hours once  a week.

I agree with you and thank you for the information. I walk my dog so he does stop and smell, etc. but after he is through, I will be picking up the pace and going quicker. But my one question is - don’t you get tired and benefits from walking around a flea market for an hour or so where you are basically standing and moving slowly?

Psychedelic Drug Psilocybin Tamps Down Brain’s Ego Center plus Getting Closer to Nature, One Bite at a Time

Psychedelic Drug Psilocybin Tamps Down Brain’s Ego Center plus Getting Closer to Nature, One Bite at a Time – Dr. Frederick Barrett – Steve Brill – Violet Brill – Perhaps no region of the brain is more fittingly named than the claustrum, taken from the Latin word for -hidden or shut away-. The claustrum is an extremely thin sheet of neurons deep within the cortex, yet it reaches out to every other region of the brain. Its true purpose remains -hidden away- as well, with researchers speculating about many functions. What is known is that this region contains a large number of receptors targeted by psychedelic drugs such as LSD or psilocybin the hallucinogenic chemical found in certain mushrooms. To see what happens in the claustrum when people are on psychedelics, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers compared the brain scans of people after they took psilocybin with their scans after taking a placebo. PLUS Steve and Violet Brill looks at a forest the same way most people think about a supermarket. Walkthrough a park or wooded area with them and they can show you a number of wild plants that might make for tasty additions to your dinner plate. They would tell you how yellow wood sorrel tastes just like lemonade or how black birch can be used as a minty flavoring for pudding. With the advent of this pandemic, foraging may be more important than ever. Some are including it in their home-schooling curriculum in hopes of arming their children with this almost-forgotten art.

    Preventing Cardiovascular Disease – an Interview with Dr. Jeffry Life 

    In this episode, we’re featuring a special RAAD Fest discussion from last year between Dr. Gladden and Dr. Jeffry Life, a doctor who has focused his practice on healthy aging and helping patients avoiding heart attacks and strokes. He incorporates the Bale-Doneen Method (learn more in the book Beat the Heart Attack Gene) in his treatment plans, which is about aggressively looking for vascular inflammation that causes heart disease and working to stop it.

    They discuss some of the testings that can be done to identify vascular risk factors, which fall outside of the normal insurance-based model of healthcare.

    Doing The Perfect Keto Diet: Doing Perfect Keto – Chris Irvin –

    Everyone agrees that a low-carb, low-sugar Keto lifestyle reduces inflammation and resets insulin sensitivity. Yet there is still confusion about what to eat too and what not to eat. So much so there are entire books dedicated to the subject. And much of that information in those books become outdated as soon as new research provides insights into which foods and supplements work or don’t work as originally expected. And when it comes to snack foods and sweet treats the water gets even murkier. What if there was a website that was driven by current science and gave you access to everything you needed to do low-carb Keto right? Perfect Keto.
