"Learn by so there in that state we have a fancy utopia hope here on the podcast called the Jeff Walker see. I'm benign hands off later. But I'm very proud woking if I was to make you join walking saw. I mean thinking walking king-size had walker. What would be the first thing you would do on day? One first thing I would do would be to implement a system of national right pricing. One thing that will be tolls on roads. Yes all some mechanism for charging because London. Yes but I think it needs to be done at the national national level because cities are fearful of doing it in case because isn't a level playing field so I think actually having a national road pricing scheme the could be designed to deter her short journeys if it was any more sophisticated it could deter them at certain times of the day or when air quality is poor and I think that would be people with their naturally actually being more aware of their decisions. I think the big problem is once. You've got a car because the fixed cost of the car is so high. You will use it as much as you possibly can to justify. That costs so once. You've got a car you've got caucus in your pocket you're gonNA use it for virtually every trip so national pricing Joe Walker and chief so Bingo. BINGO fiscal burtless said. Let's see some long-term investment plans lots of stop-start and very minor funding in this area. But if you asked me for one thing that you might change orange in one fell swoop. I'd probably say the twenty mile an hour in urban areas. That would make a big difference to the to the feel of areas and make them much more attractive and the good again. My National Road Pricing System would fund improvements. There we go home sold Susan Clarice and gentlemen. Thanks so much John. We'll we're doing the up some in a new way for years. When I spent on the radio I used to do? The show stood up like this. I turned forty. I just start setting down from that point it almost all the shows stunning. Wow Yeah Probably get myself back trouble in later. Life through standing up so much. I was really inspired by by the episode. Yeah that was like an. I think you just have a bit of credit for it because you sort of said the other week or thing we should do something a bit more breath you down to earth. Just just something like Click on an individual guy on you thank you you I mean it's just the business. This isn't a yeah absolutely. I can't imagine anybody's listening to this and I'm in his antiwar you know something interesting. which is that that stuff? The Shane was saying that you psychologically feel better after walking something. I always sort of notice but I don't think thank you just think oh I feel better after war but you don't it's just it must be a function of of the way the brain will have about you get twice as many good ideas And all of that and what Susan was saying it was only something she'd noticed. But if you see kids who've walked to school they tend to be a bit more alert and engage in that that I guess what time with chains theories Raz. Yeah we all want more and we want to see our towns and cities made into more walking friendly environments absolutely as reasons to be cheerful with Jeff. If you've got views on walking particularly if your favorite.

"Rhythm only seem the reasons to be cheerful with Jeff. Lloyd we have on the line in Dublin. Shane o'meara who is a professor of experimental Era Mental Brain Research Trinity College. He's author of a fantastic book called in praise of Walking Shane. Hello Hello I'm devices to be speaking with you. He's the walking champion of all walking champions releasing here's the Volcker Wolkanczik at. We were just saying before. We turn the microphones on the big big fans of walking in all its form ambling puttering strolling striding rambling. Give give me any of them you you you argue that walking is what makes us human. What you mean by that? I think You know humans do make this case And walkin a distinctly different way to all of their animals and we undergo a transition that is quite unlike any other species on the planet. You know if if you think back to when you were into our when you observe other kids crawl around on all fours and then around about a year or so of age to make this dramatic change Hey where they start to sit up they start to pull themselves up and they go from stable to a very unstable position but I my argument is very straightforward forward without this transition. I our brains. Wouldn't be mobile in the world. In the with the our our hands would not be free so this kind of changes is it is the core of the kind of change that allowed us to walk out of Africa and conquer the banners will. That's pretty big deal and yes yeah I think so. I think it's time for a bit of Cook a gaunt. I think it's his first appearance on our pulled cost but you quote him in your book. Every day. I woke myself into a state of wellbeing and walk away from every illness. I've walked myself into my best thoughts and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it you'll cases it's good for mental and physical health. Yes yeah absolutely. That is good for body and brain and you know. Just let's take the body just from Way We humans are again during a very strange thing to ourselves we might spend. I guess maybe fifty or sixty hours a week sitting around which which is something that we've never done before and we need contract Tendency we have towards a sedentary lifestyle and the easy and obvious thing to do to get on our feet and get moving and we know that the the very active walking changes things in your breathing changes your heart changes the the stress and strain that you place on your muscles. It's good few in in myriad ways in terms of your body functions but it is also remarkably the market. Good for you in terms of of how your rain functions as well tell. Tell us more about that. If your seasons at the moment I'm standing and walking while I'm talking to you in my office I got one of those treadmills or just walking around on diagonally across from one Carter of my office the other. Wow do that law. I am hoping to get a treadmill desk but eh one you deserve all sorts of ones out there so anyway. That's kind the by the by so when you're you're not actually placing much strain on the part of your body apart from the small of your back. Which is why you might have a lower back pain when you stand everything changes for you? You're breathing changes. The brain has to do something which is hasn't had to worry about before which is maintaining stability so getting upright and staying upright is no mean achievement for brain and a whole series of rhythms Sir Sir previously required in your brain suddenly kick into play And everything changes for you. You're hearing becomes a little bit sharper in your vision. Becomes a little bit sharper and your brain is ready for action and argue in the book that the reason we have a brain is for movement. You don't need a brain if you're not moving around in the world and because we have a brain that's been for movement we should take advantage of this and it does something to your creativity. Yeah so What we know from observing the degrade artists and novelists and others of the of the generations rations is that they walk they walk a loss So a ninety was kind of one of the greatest philosophers of all time. You could set the clock by in Koenigsberg. Mark Stephen King at the novelist walks in astonishing amount and we can demonstrate. Experimentally does say people it become a little bit more creative after short periods of walking around the world so a very simple way of doing. This is. If you're at your desk. Can you pick up a pen or some of the other objects that might be lying around and you have to ask yourself how many how many uses can I come up with for this object. So this is is a kind of an alternative uses task. If you're Caesar's and you do this task you might come up with four or five or six but if I get you to walk around on for ten minutes before you do tasks like this. They numbers of ideas that you generates approximately doubles. Yeah and there's also something something else that's really important about this. Finding it has recently been replicated in Taiwan with a group of people in their seventies. What you find is that people in their seventies who walked for a short period prior to generating ideas come up with about twice as many of them as do seated? Twenty year-olds this. Is I think one of these kind of overlooked little tricks to ensure that you keith need some degree of creativity as you get older now. Shane give us some advice. How much should we be woking each week And how should we be woking mole. We should all be walking north lot more so than the average child learns to walk does about two thousand listen three hundred steps per hour which is lost when you consider that the average adults in western societies he does about four thousand four thousand five five hundred steps a day so not much. The Japanese are the best has walkin day do about five and a half thousand steps a day which is really not so much. Where is our people who were living are sometimes referred to as ancestral lifestyles? They will walk fifteen kilometers a day. And they have astonishing astonishing heart health. So they the people that live in the blue zones around the world and lift like hundred yeah exactly kilometers in steps so a it. I think we've all heard ten thousand steps today saying it was a marketing team for pedometers in the sixties. But it actually I think is quite useful. This will because ten thousand steps if your stride length is a major I is more or less ten kilometers so if you can do ten thousand steps today consistently exactly that's what you need to do. I would suggest. Is You do it in bursts cross the day rather than exhausting yourself in one go. They were built to do kind of distributed active busy So you can easily Hack Os ten or twelve thousand steps today Some of it should be got speed. Should be difficult to speak when you're doing. You should break a moderate sweat so let's say our hard in a city this is the Ba- I struggle with. I was going to ask about this because to go into the controversial territory wants a balance between sort of walking and running or walking and cycling liked walking and swimming and but your thing is really econ just be sedate walking. It's got to be you got to get your heart rate up. Update you really. Yeah so again. I think you need to ask yourself the purpose of the walk you're going on is so if you're going to have a tink an attachment ask yourself about a difficult problem. Maybe Nas pump out the the power will maybe do as a little bit of a slow race but if you're doing it for the purposes of cardiac the account and doing thirty forty minutes at about six kilometers. An hour is kind of the terrorist. Really wants to be. I don't want to come across as being anti runner Oronte cycling or anti swimming. I think these things are all great activities. I suppose the one thing I'd say about running as per million in steps wrong as opposed to permission steps walk what you see is runners injured themselves rather lost whereas walkers hardy injure themselves yourselves at all the the level of injury is kind of flash So running does present certain problems. Our cities aren't good for running. You can turn on your ankle you can follow. You can do quite a few things that you might do when you're when you're at walking. Can we talk about Town planning and yeah. What kind of thought could be given to town planning the interest of walkers and also you decided that psychologists and neuroscientists should be involved in that T.? Tell us a bit more. I guess the point it really is this. You know when you think about where people want to go in our towns and cities gold wanted to go to places where other people are so the tourist attractions in London just take an example are places like covent garden there are no cars Present in Covent Garden. People aren't going to the a forty west to who meets with others except if they're maybe nerdy motorway enthusiasts by the more general point is that they need to make our towns and cities have tariff barriers. That are places that people want to be. In other words we need to stop thinking thoroughfares. As places far cars we need to think of as destinations for people and that means the kinds of things are are interested to a psychological need need to be built into them. They need to be beautiful. That need to be Green. The need to founded nece at the need to have a quality known as porosity so the the it must be lots of angles and intersections places. The people can ten generally meet each other by accident and I don't sense from our current generation of town planners stay. Stay the ticket. People as anything other than the kind of awkward bits of squashy fleshed really should be contained in cars. Can I get that no fence talk of the town planners who are listening against an exception to that right We have a thing on the podcast chain called Jeff crecy which is where Jeff is the Supreme Rula if you if he made you think frankly he should. The Minister of a walking nominees facility walks not Mississippi. Walks that What's the first thing you you would do a ban all city center parking? Oh talking not yes. No people won't bring their cars into town if nowhere to park them. Interesting and divulge all of those car spaces to widen footpaths to to bringing in small micro environments to providing stands for bicycles and to creating space for fixed-line I transport trams. Wow sounds good. Now I'd been standing up for the sort of second. Half of this interview is that it's standing up. A good thing. Standing is better than sitting without any dose. But there's no reason why you couldn't be walking if space face allows you to so. I've been walking continuously since we started this and I guess I've done about fifteen hundred steps in that period. How feats the revelation relation you? All the champion woking advocate of all walking advocates. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you so much for having me talk further about what we can do in the vision for walking on blood say that we're joined by Jovan chief executive of living streets and Susan clarice who the transplant and currently associate director of the Engineering Arab. Thank you so much for joining us. Joe Tell us some first of all. What's the story behind living streets? And what do you do so what we were a charity the UK charity for everyday walking and we started back in one thousand nine hundred. Ninety nine Moore call the pedestrians association. And why because suddenly suddenly there was most of trophic suddenly building up a not much control over it so the six thousand people killed that year on.
