(25+ quotes)

These walking quotes talk about the ways our ‘wanderings’ can benefit our body, mind and spirit. Hiking in nature is soul soothing. 

Have you had the experience of getting ideas as you walk? Try taking a walk the next time you have a problem to solve or a bad case of writer’s block. Walking gets the creative juices flowing even if you don’t get a single idea while you are out. Taking a walk is a metaphor for ‘getting away from the problem’. By setting aside your thinking for a while, you put yourself in the incubation stage of the creative process. Simply walking and mindfully observing your surroundings can bring you gifts of insight or revelation when you return to your work!
