Using StillWalks - The Reflective Pool
Developing the Senses
Experience shows that ongoing use of the StillWalks videos and taking regular walks can help develop clear, creative minds, relieve tension, increase health and provide a greater sense of well-being.
StillWalks videos demonstrate that the proven benefits of “Green Exercise” can be gained from urban as well as natural environments. The benefits come from the practiced use of your senses and your subsequent awareness of the intricate connections to be made in any environment - natural or man-made.
StillWalks benefits include increased perception, improved health and wellbeing and enhanced cognitive skills.
All these elements will lead towards increased efficiency in mind and body at work and at home.
The StillWalks Reflective Pool
The Reflective Pool is a StillWalks Personal Learning Journal. It should be used alongside the provided StillWalks videos either by individuals at home or by a group through work or other organisation.
The Personal Learning Journal illustrates clear techniques to help you develop your senses of sight and sound, seeing and hearing. These are your primary resources for increasing your awareness and understanding the interconnections that are all around you in all environments.
