Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0966787943, Paperback)

A walk can be much more than great exercise -- if you know how to renew your body, mind, and spirit with a MindWalk. MindWalks combines easy, inspiring mental exercises and meditations, which help you make a simple walk more productive, relaxing and fun, with exquisitely written observations in the tradition of Thoreau's Walden.

More and more people are walking for exercise because it provides most of the benefit of running or aerobics without punishing stress on the body. MindWalks shows you how to double the benefit of your exercise by using the time to solve problems, reduce the impact of stress, manage your emotions, and enjoy the world around you more. With MindWalks, you make the most of your time by improving your mental state while you work on your physical well-being.

But MindWalks is more than just useful information. It opens your eyes to the everyday wonders that lie all around you if you know how to spot them. Done right, a MindWalk isn't just about exercise. It's also about inhaling the smell of crisp salt air at the beach. It's about spotting a jogger with a parakeet on her head. And it's about discovering one special thing each day that makes a walk worthwhile. In short, it's about enjoying yourself.

This collection of meditations and mental exercises use awareness, humor, and practical advice to turn a walk into exercise for both body and brain. MindWalks can be tucked into a pocket and taken on your walk. It makes a perfect gift for someone who already enjoys a walk -- or for someone who's thinking about starting. Because MindWalks makes walking more fun, it can motivate you to walk more often.

MindWalks will appeal to the growing number of baby boomers who want easier, more enjoyable ways to exercise while combating the stress of everyday life.
