Walking on Air

A 10 minute walk can make you feel better than the "quick fix" of sugar or a cigarette, says Dr Robert Thayer, a psychologist at California State University, Long Beach.Whether you're stressed,depressed or seething with anger, Thayer's seven-year study showed that walking gives you a lasting energy high and a mood boost that can't be achieved by eating chocolate or smoking. So next time you're on the verge of a nervous breakdown don't turn to sweets or nicotine - take a hike.
