This poster, by Marc Johns is designed to act as a simple reminder to take time to stroll. Marc Johns is an illustrator from Victoria, Canada.

Here are three reasons why walking is medicine:

  • A little daily gentle exercise significantly reduces the stress hormone, cortisol, in our bodies.  Cortisol can do some nasty things like weaken our bones, cause us to take longer to recover from illness and damage the way our brains work.
  • A few minutes pacing out on two feet can increase our creativity by up to 60% (according to a recent study by Stanford University). 
  • Walking is easy for our minds. We need to set the bar for exercise so that we are just on the edge of our comfort zone. If we set it too high then it can be tricky to keep motivated. Be kind to yourself and stroll.
