In Praise of Walk­ing

Paradise - - Living -

By Shane O’Mara (Pen­guin)

One char­ac­ter­is­tic that makes us who we are as a species is walk­ing up­right on two feet. Neu­ro­sci­en­tist Shane O’Mara has re­searched the evo­lu­tion and sci­ence of walk­ing. O’Mara re­minds us of a very sim­ple plea­sure – go­ing out for a walk to clear our heads – and the many ben­e­fits it pro­vides, such as los­ing weight, so­cial­is­ing, re­cal­i­brat­ing in­ner com­passes and gain­ing men­tal clar­ity.
