Mindful Walking

A meditation you can do almost anywhere.

Essentially it is to walk while you are being aware of every step you take – to be aware of your body and your breath. It is great for grounding down and to be present with your surroundings.

As you begin your mindful walking practice, you can start out with noticing your steps and the sensations in your legs as you walk and feel your breath.

Later you can start to expand your practice and feel everything surrounding you depending on where you are. If you are walking outside you can be aware of the wind, the smells and the temperature etc.

I find that it is a great and easy way to appreciate life right where you are in the moment. And a great way to reduce stress, because you improve your ability to let go of your to do list and other things on your mind.
