Can Walking 30 Minutes a Day Make You Happy?
I saw a mutual on Twitter, looking for people to volunteer for a research project. The project was to walk daily for x amount of time, and fill in a questionnaire at the beginning and end of the experiment. I'm always up for a walk and if I'm helping someone out, why not?!
I sent them my details and they emailed me the Oxford Happiness Questionnaire. I filled it out and scored a measly 2.7 - somewhat unhappy. Not totally surprising, though I was expecting a lower score! Then, it was time to begin the experiment. I was given a 30 minute walk to complete daily for seven days, then I had to fill in the questionnaire again and - hopefully - have a better score.
