Wanna Be Creative? ‘Walk This Way’
The next time someone tells you to “go take a walk”, they might be doing you a favor. A new study from Stanford researchers found that a person’s creativity can be increased by as much as 60% when walking. Wow! That means if you want to be more creative, just strap on some comfortable shoes and take a walk.
You could also put on some headphones and listen to some “walk-inspired” songs. I’ve taken the liberty to put together a playlist from some very creative artists:
Dire Straits- “Walk of Life”
Katrina & The Waves- “Walking On Sunshine”
Nancy Sinatra- “These Boots Are Made for Walking”
The Bangles- “Walk Like An Egyptian”
Marc Cohn- “Walking in Memphis”
Johnny Cash- "I Walk The Line"
Kelly Clarkson- “Walk Away”
Aerosmith- “Walk This Way”
and The Proclaimers- “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” (If those guys really walked 500 miles, they must be geniuses!)
