Solvitur Ambulando

women walking

Solvitur ambulando is Latin for “it is solved by walking” and the phrase has dual meanings. Originally “used to refer to a problem which is solved by a practical experiment” (Wikipedia) or physical demonstration it has also come to refer to the practice of taking a walk to clear our minds, relax, and perhaps allow our creativity freer rein.

Amble, a leisurely relaxed walk, has the same Latin root: ambulare, to walk. The key is to get moving, change our environment, and change our mood, our thought patterns.

Closing Quotes:

“Few people know how to take a walk. The qualifications are endurance, plain clothes, old shoes, an eye for nature, good humor, vast curiosity, good speech, good silence and nothing too much.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803-1882

“It is impossible to walk rapidly and be unhappy.” – Mother Teresa, 1979 Nobel Peace Prize, 1910-1997

“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” – John Muir, 1838-1914

As always, I share what I most want/need to learn. – Nathan S. Collier
