Episode Notes

Why a walking podcast?

Just as we know that movement is important for our physical health, it also has an impact on our cognitive health. Walking can increase creative output by an average of 60%, and according to the American Psychological Association, a 12 minute walk results in an increase of joviality, vigor, attentiveness, and self-confidence versus sitting for the same time period. 

Join the Conversation

When you return from your walk, we encourage all teachers and staff to have a conversation with your team about some of the themes and ideas that emerged in this podcast.
