What Is It?
Walking during your scheduled mental health therapy session
Many times your health care provider will suggest that you "walk" or "exercise more". Walk and talk therapy allows you to do both at the time the same, at your pace and place of comfort.
We can walk in the comfort of the Seasons Change Counseling office on the treadmill
or out in nature on a designated trail. This detail will be discussed in detail during your session before you decide if this is right for you.
Why Should I Do It?
Exercise, such as walking, allows the brain to release certain neurotransmitters, or the "feel good" chemicals. It also increases body temperatures which are thought to have a calming effect on the brain.
Daily walking or other forms of moderate exercise can make it the perfect stress buster.
