Reach out by walking together

Logbook 22. August 2018. Reaching out by walking together

Walking together can be the best way to reach out and connect with people

Text and drawing by Frits Ahlefeldt, Hiking.org

Reaching out is harder than most think. Many are too unaware, to proud or too lost to grab a hand. Loneliness is exploding in the world at the moment. More people than ever before in history are not even able to name one close friend. The challenge is that you can’t just reach out to people when sitting… Chances are much better when walking with them, it works  in ways that are both physical, psychological, spiritual, and intuitive. People find a balance between talking, walking and just watching the landscape in silence.  And it helps us to open up and relax – Try it next time you need to reach out to someone – walk together
