No talking, just walking

«In Plum Village, the practice center where I live in southwest France, we don’t talk when we walk. This helps us fully enjoy walking one hundred percent. If you talk a lot, then it’s difficult for you to experience your steps deeply, and you won’t enjoy them very much. The same is true when you drink a cup of tea: if you’re concentrated and you focus your attention on the cup of tea, then the cup of tea becomes a great joy. Mindfulness and concentration bring about pleasure and insight.»

Thich Nhat Hanh
(in How to Walk (2015); Berkeley: Parallax Press, p.29)
