Walking is a natural way of getting out of a mood. Many depressed people have started a process of recovery by getting out of bed ... then taking walks several times a day. Studies show that walking is an effective treatment in alleviating emotional distress, regaining perspective, and getting rid of stress. Are you addicted to getting a high from food, drink, drugs, purchases, sex, gambling etc.? Take long walks! It can provide a same type of "relief." Except that walking is healthy rather than destructive. And the price is so right.
