Hiking in nature is perhaps the healthiest activity available, rejuvenating the soul, challenging our bodies, and quietening our minds.
Whether you’re planning a trek through the woods, a strenuous mountain climb, or just an afternoon wander along the coast why not incorporate some meditation whilst grounding yourself in nature?
“A walk in nature walks the soul back home.“ – Mary Davis.
How to meditate whilst out walking
Begin by walking steady and slow, breathe naturally
Notice your inhale and your exhale
Feel your feet on the ground and be aware if each step you take
Beaware of your surroundings, any smells, what you see
Connect to your inner presence while remaining aware of what’s going on around you
If you get lost in your thoughts, simply return to your breathing
