Earlier this week Thomas Nail, a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Denver in the United States, wrote an article titled: Why is walking so good for the brain? Blame it on the "spontaneous fluctuations".  

This article spoke about walking: how it affects our brains, and whether it could actually help students in school - to remember better, to think more creatively and help build more positive relationships between both students and teachers.

Given that New Zealand has gone back into lockdown we, as a result, are going on a lot more walks. Zazi wanted to speak to Thomas about this research to see if walking should continue to remain part of our daily lives, past the lockdown climate, as well as be incorporated into our education systems. 

Zazi began by asking Thomas what the connection is between walking and thinking.
