Updated frequently: You’re walking at your normal place.

If you feel more fleet-footed than in your habitual walk, that’ a good thing. Let that belly muscle spring your rear foot forward.

Whatever you feel, you’ll notice a shift in your thinking, an awareness of the way things are and the way they might be. You’re going to be moved. Just read below.
