Baroness Greenfield has been quoted in a feature for Waitrose Weekend discussing Kate Humble's new book 'Thinking on my feet' which is all about how walks in nature can benefit our mental health. This issue is available to pick up from the 11th October 2018.
Baroness Susan Greenfield has been working on improving mental health and wellbeing for much of her career. Kate Humble's new book has related to Susan's research and her own writing on how the world around us affects our perceptions.
Thinking on my feet has had great reviews, and tells the story of Kate's walking year - shining a light on the benefits of this simple activity. Kate's inspiring narrative not only records her walks (and runs) throughout a single year, but also charts her feelings and impressions throughout - capturing the perspectives that only a journey on foot allows - and shares the outcomes: a problem solved, a mood lifted, an idea or opportunity borne.
