Here’s another reason to like habit 3 of the 3 Habits of Growth, walking affirmations.
“When you walk,” writes Dr. Andrew Weil in Spontaneous Healing, “the movement of your limbs is cross-patterned: the right leg and left arm move forward at the same time, then the left leg and the right arm. This type of movement generates electrical activity in the brain that has a harmonizing influence on the central nervous system — a special benefit of walking that you do not necessarily get from other kinds of exercise.”
Walking while saying affirmations aloud creates a joint venture between your body and mind, putting more power [literally -- electrical power ] behind your goals.
Any walking and any affirmations together are better than none, although the program I’ve developed in the 3 Habits of Growth has worked well for many people.
