You Walk How You Feel
An interesting study looked at how emotions impact the way people walk. In the study, “participants recalled past emotional experiences (anger, fear, happy, sad, and neutral), ‘relived’ those emotional memories before gait initiation (GI), and then walked 4 (meters) across the laboratory floor.”
Not surprising, the emotions changed the way people walked. Those who were happy or angry walked faster with a longer stride and “more forceful stepping behavior” than those who were sad.
Something to consider as you walk or watch other people walking.
