“[T]oday, most people are sitting on their arses in a chair looking at the screen to discover and explore the world,” says Norwegian explorer Erling Kagge. “And that’s a huge misunderstanding. You’re missing out on some of the greatest things in life.”
There is an inner silence to be found through walking, says Kagge. You exercise your curiosity and the movement of your body, which are two ancient and important things for Homo sapiens.
Some people experience silence through meditation, mindfulness, or yoga. But Kagge emphasizes that you don’t need any formal techniques. If you are interested in finding inner silence, you can create it anywhere, just by walking.
