We're all searching for answers. Reading the works of authors that are on the same quest we are is a way to search for those answers. Other media
gives us information. Talking to people gives us information.
What good does all this do us, though, if we don't process the information internally? That is, evaluate it?
I think it's easy to get overloaded with information. All this does is makes us feel overloaded!! What's the point?
I think we all need a technique that sets aside time to think. When I say "think" in this paragraph I mean listen to our inner voice.
I say an excellent way to do this is to go for walks. One advantage of this is that the exercise increases oxygen to the brain which helps us focus.
Also, the fresh air is invigorating (hopefully - depending upon where you live) and, of course, there's glorious sunshine outside. Walking in the
rain also has its benefits.
In the final analysis we all need our own philosophy. I think going for walks can help us find it.
