Mindful Walking

Mindful Walking

I’ve always enjoyed walking, but many years ago, after the death of my mum (which was very sudden) I noticed that even though I would walk for miles and mile, it felt like the whole time I had been gone, I hadn’t seen a thing. I was so absorbed in my own grief and thoughts I missed out on everything.

 Then one morning I stopped and noticed squirrel burying his nuts. It was so cute it made me smile. Gradually over a period of weeks I realised that I was actually beginning to notice everything around me again. Flowers, birds singing in the trees, bees buzzing gradually by. I found these walks to be so positive and uplifting and my grief began to lessen.

By slowing down and taken notice of everything around me, I began to feel better. All my walking became mindful, a bit like a treasure hunt, looking for little scenes of happiness and beauty to lift my spirits. It became a habit and with each day I noticed so much more. The more I noticed, the better I felt and the better I felt, the better I slept. It was a positive, upwards cycle!

So, next time things seem a bit too much, I thoroughly recommend taking a bit of time off and treating yourself to a mindfulness walk.
