    Ten Good Reasons to Go for a Walk with Thierry & Mary Anne Malleret

    Meet Thierry & Mary Anne Malleret, who reveal the life-changing benefits of moving, and in particular walking out in nature. Not only is walking good for our bodies, it stimulates our brains, gives us access to our creative and strategic minds, and helps us to make good decisions. Compelling evidence from leading institutions such as Harvard and Stanford University and The Wellness Institute support movement as not just being important, but essential for us to be able to enjoy physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.  Thierry and Mary Anne challenge us all to transform our lives, and our world, 1 step at a time. They highlight that every single step we make as individuals ends up being relevant when aggregated at the scale of the 7.5 billion people who live on the planet.
