Podcast: Walking Backward to Move Forward in Your Life
Moving forward in your life, sometimes requires you to literally walk backwards.
Walking backwards may actually improve the way your brain functions.
According to Harvard Medical School “A study published in the January 2019 issue of Cognition found that people who actually walked backward, imagined they were walking backward, or even watched a video simulating backward motion, had better recall of past events than those who walked forward, or sat still.”
It is the physical motion of walking backwards that causes these positive changes in your brain.
Walking backwards on a regular basis can also physically improve your range of motion and reduce the possibility of injuries.
So how can you use the technique of physically walking backwards to move forward in your life?
Walking backwards when you are facing challenges in your life not only allows you to improve the way your brain functions and move forward, but also allows you to physically reduce the risk of injuries and create a positive impact in your life.
I am walking backwards on a regular basis to improve my brain. How about you?
