Walk – Mindfully

Did you know the simple act of walking can be a form of meditation?

Dorothy M. Neddermeyer, PhD. explains how in the following article from EVliving.com

Many people have been indoctrinated to believe walking is a chore, therefore, it is something to be avoided. People look for the closest parking space in any parking lot, take elevators to the second floor and generally avoid walking as much as possible.

Some people recognize walking as the most beneficial activity that is a natural course of living.  Walking can be an easy multitasking effort. Walking a few blocks has unlimited benefits-not only for your health, but your spirit as well. As you walk, connect with your inner thoughts. If you are walking outside; walk on grass or bare dirt so that your feet connect with mother earth. If you walk on concrete; the earth is still beneath you, supporting you-simply visualize the earth’s nurturing energy coming through the concrete into your feet and body. Walking allows your body to remember simpler times, when life was less complicated-when walking was the only mode of transportation.
