A walking meditation

Turn a simple walk outdoors into an opportunity to mindfully meditate by following these simple prompts.

Go for a walk to your local green space.

When you are ready, focus on the present moment.

Notice your walking. Feel your feet on the ground as you walk.

Focus on the way your arms move as you walk.

Become aware of all of the different parts of your body involved in your act of walking.

Notice your breath as you walk. Feel your inhales and your exhales.

See the wind ruffle the leaves on the trees.

Feel the wind on your skin.

Enjoy taking your time on the walk.

Listen to the sounds around you and think about them.

If your mind drifts off, listen gently to your thoughts before bringing your awareness back to your walk.

Let your inner conversation to yourself be kind and compassionate.
