We are so accustomed to rushing through the shops, running from the train to the bus, or walking aimlessly from work to the car that walking mindfully is a big hit to the system. Concentrating on each step, keeping the mind focused and not worrying about the destination or the time is something so simple in principle but so difficult in reality.
When you can walk and just walk it is a liberating experience. Imagine if you can find peace and quiet every time you walk - your days will be filled with great happiness, no matter where you are.
It is paramount that we develop the tools necessary to allow ourselves to better manage our thoughts and feelings, because we all have times when we are overwhelmed and feel under great pressure. If our minds are constantly wandering not only do we lose touch with reality but we lose energy fighting the constant bombardment of noise, this leads to negativity and a killing of our zest, passion, drive and positivity.
By learning how to calm our mind and our bodies we find a tool that we can use through any storm or crisis, this can help restore perspective so we make decisions that are closer to are true self and not out of confusion and dispersion.
