Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.

An Example of Nearly Unobservable Changes in Life - Walking Speed

Some changes are measurable, but because of the gradual nature that takes years to notice the change.


Once I read a study that investigated the rate at which Bach's music has been played for decades. Apparently, the younger the latest music from the fastest performance was played. "Has management came to the sacred area of the arts of the time," then thought.

A recent study, "led by British psychologist Professor Richard Wiseman" revealed that "pedestrians around the world move faster
than a decade ago ... Psychologists say walking speeds have increased an average of ten percent in the last ten years ... people in the greatest haste live in Singapore, according to the study of cities in 32 countries. in their footsteps are residents of Copenhagen in Denmark and Madrid in Spain. "

In the same study, it was also the first time that more people live in cities than in the countryside ... ", thus affecting more people than ever."

And: "Surprisingly, some of the largest cities in the world do not even make the top five New York arrived at eight ...." And London just below 20, where a previous study showed that the pace of life in the Welsh capital is almost the slowest in the world ... London approached the brand as having
fast walkers UK (news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/wales/south_east/6612859.stm)

It is not mentioned in the (first) article (source: http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/europe/05/02/walking.speeds/) is the fact that this trend is anything but healthy. The travel speed is a symptom of stress and contributes to heart disease.

Obviously, this is not just a trend that will soon cease, / fast growing speed continue to influence our lives. It is also interesting that globalization makes this bad habit spread like a virus. Eastern cities are rising on the rhythm list.

It is likely that the rate of increase is caused by other fields. Sport is very natural that the above folder must be broken. But there will be a limit; logging hundreds of meters Olympic can never be shortened, or it could?

Culturally, this gap so fast = good; not only Olympic records, but also the music of Bach. It's a shame but that increased walking speed is not healthy.

As the saying goes: the hasty bitch gives birth to small blind ...

I hope there will be a time when the trend reverses. This probably requires more than a slow-food initiative meters.
