You regularly hear about the physical benefits of walking. It strengthens your bones, your muscles and your heart and helps to control your weight. It stimulates the systems of your body that are necessary for optimum effectiveness, e.g. your cardiovascular, immune and respiratory systems. Research has shown that walking can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, bowel cancer, strokes, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

Walking also has psychological benefits for you. It is mood-enhancing and can help combat depression. It can build stamina, confidence and energy and help to reduce the risk of stress and anxiety.

You will often hear that you should go for a walk to clear your head, empty the clutter from your mind or remove negative thoughts.

Walking, however, can fill your mind – through walking you can create new ideas, gain new insights, and develop new perspectives. It can give you the stimulus and inspiration to move up to another level in your Internet business.

Recent research has shown that physical activity, such as walking, can help ward off Alzheimer’s disease. It has this effect because walking, and other physical activities, create new connections in your brain.

So when you walk you are creating new physical connections in your brain that in turn help you to develop new ideas, insights and understanding. When you walk you start to see connections between things that before seemed quite discrete or separate.

Often the solution to growth of your Internet business and income is right before your eyes, looking you in the face – you just can’t see it!

Walking gives a clarity of vision and insight that puts things in a new light – even things that you have seen everyday.

It is these new connections, intuitive understanding and creative insight that can make a real difference to your Internet business.
