Walking/running and talk therapy are particularly helpful for people feeling like they are trapped in a life or roles that don’t fit them anymore. Being outdoors and talking about your issues enhances the renewal of a sense of freedom.
Walking and running helps increase the blood flow to the brain with new ideas to tackle issues more likely to arise. Being amongst nature has an impact on general wellbeing. One study by Mind revealed that 95% of those interviewed said their mood improved after spending time outside, changing from depressed, stressed, and anxious to calmer and more balanced.
Also, for people sitting in an office all day and for whom the idea of sitting yet again for a counselling session may prevent them from seeking counselling, walk and talk therapy might be an option they would like to consider.
