“Going for a good walk is a great way of letting go the burden of ‘me’. It gives us rhythmical time for sorting out our thoughts; for coming to terms with our humanity – mortal, afflicted with doubt and feelings of guilt, vulnerable and often clouded by confusion. This does not mean that we walk away from our problems; it is more a case of getting them in proportion, seeing them for what they are and not allowing them to dominate us with guilt, worry or anxiety.”
