Learning How To Walk Fast ... A Brain and Body Connection

Day 18 
Minds In Motion Initiative 
30 Day Walk30 Challenge

You know about the importance of picking up those arms to help your move forward with more power ... I hope that you have been using your arms and you're not feeling too awkward walking in the neighborhood.  The people on your street will be thinking that you are taking this walking thing seriously ... and that's okay.

You really need to employ technique most of the time when you head out walking so that the neural pathways in your brain can be established for that particular way you are changing the way operate your body.  I always say that it takes 6 weeks to build the body memory for a new way of moving if you continue to do what it is you have learned on a regular basis.

The bottom line is that you need to practice so that you create the bridges in your brain that make you comfortable with this new way of moving ... I found this amazing video that explains this incredible process ...  Check it out ...
