The Art of Walking

How do you enjoy walking? Are you merely going from point A to point B? Do you walk briskly for the cardiovascular benefits? Do your walks have a specific target or goal in mind? Have you ever simply ‘sauntered’ as Henry David Thoreau suggests?

Sauntering, while walking, is an experience. This type of walking is purely delicious and luxurious. It has no specific goal in mind. While sauntering, it allows the adventure to ebb and flow naturally. It’s open. Free. Expecting nothing, but receiving everything.

Thoreau viewed walking in a unique way. He considered walking to be more of a spiritual endeavor rather than mere exercise.

Thoreau was convicted by the thought that walking should involve a ‘connection’ with our natural world and approached with the mindset of becoming ‘fully present’. He believed that ‘busy’ was a conscious decision. He spoke of returning to his ‘senses’ after a saunter in the wild.

Merriam-Webster defines the word ‘saunter’ as this;


The Smithsonian explains where the origin of the word mostly likely derived:

Consider sauntering on your next walk. We don’t always need to ‘burn calories’ while walking. There is no doubt about the benefits of walking on our cardiovascular system, brain and mood. Every once in awhile, just walk for the pure ecstasy and enjoyment. Enter your walk with no expectations and with an open mind and heart. Allow your senses to become immersed in the adventure.
