Stanford research found that walking boosts creative inspiration. They examined creativity levels of people while they walked versus while they sat. A person’s creative output increased by an average of 60 percent when walking.
A new study by Stanford researchers provides an explanation for this. The study found that walking indoors or outdoors similarly boosted creative inspiration. The act of walking itself, and not the environment, was the main factor. Across the board, creativity levels were consistently and significantly higher for those walking compared to those sitting.
The phenomena is not new, see in the following TED video, where Nilofer Merchant suggests to make one-on-one meetings by walking with the person.
