Mindful Walk

Blustery day? Why not wrap up warm and go for a walk. Enjoy the feel of the wind against your face and listen for the sound it makes in any trees nearby.

Whilst walking notice how the colours of the leaves are starting to change. There may be blackberries and rosehips in the hedgerows.

Choose a natural object from within your immediate environment and focus on watching it for a minute or two. This could be a flower, leaves on a tree or an insect, or even the clouds.

Don’t do anything except notice the thing you are looking at. Simply relax into watching for as long as your concentration allows. Look at this object as if you are seeing it for the first time. Visually explore every aspect of its formation, and allow yourself to be consumed by its presence. Allow yourself to connect with its energy and its purpose within the natural world.

Why not collect some and take them home so that you can have a closer look at them.
