How to take a mindful walk

Many people think of meditation when they hear the word mindfulness. But, there are other ways to practice mindfulness. Mindfulness is simply the practice of being present. I would love to tell you, how to take a mindful walk.

Have you ever heard of this? A mindful walk is something that can immediately help you feel better- and there is no cost!

If you are ready to…

  1. Feel more peace
  2. Be more present

Give it try! Here is how to get started-


How to take a mindful walk:

  1. Walk without listening to music or a podcast
  2. As you start your walk, ground yourself by counting your step 1 to 10 and then start back at 1. Do this as long as you need to start to feel present.
  3. Look around and really notice your surroundings. Name all of the things that you can see – trees, grass, houses, a neighbor walking their dog, kids playing, etc…
  4. Then… listen! Name all of the things that you can hear – birds chirping, someone mowing their lawn, cars, water splashing, etc.
  5. Next, name everything you can smell – freshly cut grass, someone cooking dinner, flowers, etc.
  6. Now… what can you feel – the wind blowing on your face, the warm sun, your gloves on your hands, your pants rubbing on your legs, etc.
  7. Then… what can you taste – your coffee from this morning, gum in your mouth, or maybe a snowflake, etc.
  8. Then start back at what you can see and move back down again through the senses. Each time you will be in a new area of your walk.
  9. If you need to, go back to counting your steps to ground you to the present.
  10. You can do this for 10 minutes, around the block or for a whole hour!

I would love to hear your thoughts on this, and if you enjoyed learning how to take a mindful walk!
