Focusing on an object ahead of you can increase your speed by as much as 23 percent.*
Wow, that can make a huge difference when you are racing, or want to get your workout in during a busy day. Not to mention, focusing on something in the distance will also improve your posture which leads to faster and more fluid movement.
Therefore, go out, focus as far into the distance as possible, and you will naturally increase your speed of movement.
Best of health to you and goodbye.
