One of the top reasons late night walks are so great for you is they give you some much-needed peace and quiet. By taking more late night walks just four times a week, you’ll experience some health benefits in a fairly short amount of time. With all the benefits of late night walks, there’s no excuse not to start as soon as possible!

Key Takeaways:

  • I lived there for 25 years and would often take a short nap and go out at midnight to enjoy a sleeping city filled with atmosphere, deserted spaces, panoramic vistas, foggy and forlorn images of trees and distant expanse of water.
  • The city was so crowded during the day I could not enjoy it, I had no sense of presence.
  • The best part of exploring a city at night is the slight sense of being in an alternate world. The night smells different. You can sometimes hear underground streams flowing.
