Walk fast, walk slow, just don’t be average

I read once that one way to be more productive and feel better is to walk just a little faster than usual. Feel like you have someone to meet, something to see, somewhere to go.

From personal experience, I know that doing the opposite, purposely walking a little slower than normal, can have a similar effect. When I’m purposely walking slower than normal, my brain thinks I’m rich. I’ve got all the time in the world. Peace. Control. Calm.

The only bad option is being average, walking at the usual pace. I don’t feel productive. I’m probably not feeling at all – my mind’s elsewhere.
