Hi,

Probably since human beings appeared on Earth they have been sorting through emotional difficulties and hard-to-solve problems while
on walks. The sunlight, fresh air, and perhaps beautiful scenery add to the movements and breath that give someone an opportunity to feel unfelt emotions and examine their thoughts.
Perhaps too the much wider expanse of the outside
world makes our diffculties appear smaller and less significant. We get a sense of control over at least one part of our world--we are active an exercising. The depressed and anxious recognize this as they struggle to stay active. Exercise changes our brain chemistry after 20 minutes and our brains. while walking, experience difficulties as more acceptable or okay. We may get sudden emotional insights into what's going on in our lives.

Here is a form of emotionally accented walking
from Emoclear Self-helpapedia called Bilateral Emotional Walking which is growing in popularity in Europe and the USA.

Here is a mindful way of walking, while not emotionally centered, is a way of bringing awareness. It's from the Yoga Journal:

Hey there, thanks for the breakdown Dave. It's hard to find time to settle down and relax - how are you supposed to remove all distractions?

If you're finding coping with stress a challenge, you'll find this free 10 minute audio demo useful - so get ready to relax and listen up :)
