Enjoy a Mindful Walk This Autumn. Summer may be slipping away from us, but there are still some warm days ahead of us and autumn can be a really beautiful time to be out walking. Why not take advantage of this by practising a mindful walk?
Mindful walking simply means walking while paying attention to what's going on within our bodies and outside of us. It can be practiced anywhere, whether you are alone in nature or with others in a crowded city.
It can be hard to fit in a formal Mindfulness Meditation when life is so busy. There are many ways we can be mindful without taking time out. You can be mindful whatever you’re doing, even if it’s standing in a long queue at the checkout. Here are a few ideas of how you can be mindful in practical ways:
Watch the Sunset
Watching the sun set over the sea is one of my favourite things to do on holiday. I enjoy watching the beautiful colours as they change in the sky, and feeling the last of the warmth from the sun upon my face. It can also be a reminder that the end of the day offers us a new end and a new beginning.
