Walk, walk, walk. It’s amazing what an early morning or evening walk will do for your state of mind, health, and creativity. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of getting outside regularly— expose yourself to the elements and to Nature herself, to reconnect with your own true nature.
“Nature, too, supports our personal blossoming (if we have any quiet exposure to her) through her spontaneities, through her beauty, power, and mirroring, through her dazzling variety of species and habitats, and by way of the wind, Moon, Sun, stars, and galaxies.” ― Bill Plotkin, Nature and the Human Soul: Cultivating Wholeness and Community in a Fragmented World
Walking gets your blood flowing and your energy in motion, and it’s my default form of active meditation as taught by Thich Nhat Hanh 6. I write in great detail about this on my website: Grounding 101.
You can amplify the impact of your walking by using the power of intention and focus as you walk.
Walk as a form of prayer.
Walk as a form of medicine.
Let nature and the Universe speak to you.
>> If you are unable to walk due to physical constraints, no worries. Please still take time to get outside, in whatever capacity you can.
