Why does walking make us feel good? We all know that a satisfying stroll changes our outlook. Perhaps we realize it all the more today, when so many of us are hunkered down and this simple activity is a challenge. But walking is especially important now, with gyms and team sports shut down.

Trail Talk founder Allison Page discusses with PCTV host Christine Napier how we can keep ourselves and families mentally healthy during these unprecedented and stressful times. Trail Talk’s mission is for their clients to experience the healing power of nature as they move their bodies to clear their minds – whether with a therapist, a loved one, or on your own during this time of social distancing.
“And a group of mental health providers; Allison Page, Nurse Practitioner and Mental Health Therapist and Founder of Trail Talk, Aaron Newman Summit County Director of Behavioral Health and Anne Asman, Gerontologist and Chair of the Summit County Utah Aging Alliance are on talking about the challenges of dealing with the illness and the mental health consequences of sequestering ourselves away from society.”
Here is our latest interview on PCTV!

“(Patients) welcome the humanizing effect of taking therapy outdoors and are typically hoping to multitask by incorporating their therapy session with exercise. “The power dynamic shifts in a walking session versus an office setting,” Udler said. “If you’re the client and you’re coming in to see me in my office, it’s my space. It’s my chair. You have your chair. It’s my decorations. It’s my family photos. Outside, it’s our space.”
