Solvitur Ambulando “It is solved by walking”
The notion of Solvitur Ambulando, meaning “it is solved by walking,” has been used in many ways over the years. They all involve a form of active reflection, one that does not easily happen without taking some time away from our frantic daily routines and commitments. I did this through walking a thousand year old pilgrim path, walking to better understand myself, my interests, commitments, and passions.
This may not be needed by everybody, yet the idea of taking time to attend to our inner selves, making sense of our personal wants and needs, does often require some time away. Even a 30-minute walk in the park, without technologies or other distractions, can help us clear our hearts and minds.
When was the last time you took some time just for yourself?
More importantly, what did you find when you did so?
