Thumbs down to dreary uniformity.

Thumbs up to variety and stimulation – to London Walks.

Thumbs down to deprivation of novelty.

Thumbs up to being out and about in the world and having new experiences – to London Walks.

Thumbs down to a constricted and routine life.

Thumbs up to the excitement of the unexpected and unpredictable – to London Walks.

Thumbs down to being deprived of novelty.

Thumbs up to chance encounters with other people and the experience of new things – to London Walks.


But we will stay safe – will “social distance”

Thumbs down to monotony. It isn’t just boring – it’s bad for our brains.

Thumbs down to stultifying sameness.

Thumbs up to welcome jolts of newness – to London Walks.

Thumbs down to house arrest.

Thumbs up to spontaneous and unexpected experiences – to London Walks.

Thumbs down to every day of the week feeling identical.

Thumbs up to the surge of dopamine in our reward pathway when we have a novel experience – to London Walks.

Thumbs down to nothing to look forward to.

Thumbs up to excitement, enrichment and the feeling of being vividly alive that goes with it – to London Walks.

Thumbs down to being stripped of our ability to roam around our world the way we usually do.

Thumbs up to getting our lives back – to London Walks.

Thumbs down to Lockdown.

Thumbs up to wandering, exploring, to new experiences, to seeing new stuff – to London Walks.

Thumbs down to work, read, exercise, eat, repeat.

Thumbs up to Easter, to Spring, to rebirth, to new life, to new experiences, to novelty – to London Walks.

You want all of the above in concentrate form? Try this: Thumbs. Up. To. London. Walks.

All of which – all of the above – is by way of saying: We’re back! Outdoor walks resume on Good Friday.

Hallelujah!
