Stanford scholars Daniel Schwartz and Marily Oppezzo have conducted a new study examining the link between walking and creative thinking. Here's the basic conclusion, summarized in an article from Stanford University News:
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... "I thought walking outside would blow everything out of the water, but
walking on a treadmill in a small, boring room still had strong results,
which surprised me," Oppezzo said.
