You were put here for a reason. Let’s continue the journey noticing life’s moments, and turn all your moments of the ordinary into something extraordinary.
Mindfulness moment 4. Go for a walk in nature
Be aware of your surroundings as you walk. What are you stepping on? Can you feel the earth beneath your feet? What does it feel like?
What colours can you see?
Make a game if you like: count all the shades of colour that are not green or brown.
Take a deep breath through your nose. What can you smell?
Can you access a beach, forest, or maybe a mountain for your walk? Find some flowers to smell? A fallen leaf to crunch?
If the weather is not exactly how you would like it, all you have to do is dress appropriately, you don’t have to tell yourself narratives about what it means, just be there.
