In 2019, we’re exploring energy. How it affects us physically, mentally and spiritually. We have hooked up with a series of experts who will set an experiment every month to help us discover a way of managing our energy.
We all know how to look after our bodies by exercising and eating well, but few of us do the same for our minds. So, in May we’re going to explore the impact walking and talking can have on our mental energy by getting out there to walk and talk about topics and issues that are important to us. We’ll be looking at how this can help us to get clearer on what’s important to us, help us to process complex situations and even help reduce stress levels.
Research shows that walking opens up the free flow of ideas, and it’s a simple way to increase creativity. According to research from California State University, it can also improve energy and mood. Something we’re super excited about exploring…
Our expert to guide us through how best to get out there and start walking and talking this month is our very own Chris Barez-Brown. Chris is the creator of Talk It Out, a technique we have recently launched as a Social Enterprise. We’ve been researching Talk It Out with Bristol University and have found that 85% of people who took part felt better afterwards and as though a weight had been lifted from their shoulders.
So, for the next 4 weeks, we’re going to be doing a Talk It Out session, once a week each week, giving us the other 6 days that week to process what we learnt during the walk and land the impact those learnings have for us in our work and life. We’ll be sharing this all with you as we go too…
Talk It Out works like this:
We’re be kicking things off in week one with a Talk It Out session on life and what we’re hungry to achieve in our lives. Join us on this and try it out for yourself.
We’ll then be sharing inspiration for topics you could run a a Talk It Out session on throughout May, so if you’re joining us on this month’s experiment don’t worry if you don’t have a burning brief at the ready. The important thing is you get out there and see how it works for you.
Now let’s get out there and start walking and talking…!
