Health Access Tip:

Walking Meditation  

Walk 10-15 steps and then pause and breathe for as long as you like. 

Observe the environment around you. Stop and contemplate the art, the architecture, the colors, and even the ground you are standing on. Notice all the little details. 

You can also observe as you walk. The idea behind the practice is to walk silently and with a sense of deep contemplation. 

Focus on the sound of your footsteps as you walk and notice how your feet hit the ground. 

A walking meditation involves very deliberate thinking and doing a series of actions that you usually do automatically. 

As you walk, try to focus your attention on one or more sensations that you would typically take for granted, such as your breathing, the way your legs move or how the air feels against your skin. 

 If your mind wanders, continue focusing on something specific in your environment.
