“If you seek creative ideas go walking.

Angels whisper to a man when he goes fora walk.” 

Raymond I. Myers

Over the last few weeks we’ve spent time alone, observing our surroundings and journaling; now fill up your Libre Tea glass and go for a relaxing and mindful walk.

When walking we can remove ourselves from the stress and worries of the day and enjoy the sounds, sights and smells that surround us. We can also feel every step – be present in every ‘toe to heel’ that moves us forward. Open up to all our senses in our bodies and to our surroundings.

While you’re walking notice what you are sensing:walking on the beach

Hear – a car horn, train rumbling in the distance, people talking, a dog barking, birds calling, leaves rustling in the wind

See – the tree boughs swaying to and fro, leaves gently falling to the ground, a smile or frown on a passerby’s face, streams of traffic

Smell – enticing food from the corner bakery, dog droppings : ), freshly cut grass or wood, the sea water, a burning wood fireplace, the clean air after the rain or snowfall

Touch – the ground – hard cement, soft nature walk path, the physical sensation of each step.

Be mindful in each sense – taking each element of sensation and being fully present. How about just concentrate on just one sense for an entire walk? A different sense each day – which sense do you easily notice and which take more effort or concentration?

Become aware of how your body automatically falls into its natural walking rhythm. Are you walking fast or slow? Are your footsteps light or heavy? The more you relax the slower you walk, the lighter your footsteps and the more grounded you become.

“Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment

is the only one you know you have for sure.”

Oprah Winfrey

    I have been in awe of the fall season as I have seen all the beautiful color changing leaves of yellow, orange, and red. The vibrant, breathtaking colors of the trees just touch my heart and make me want to experience the moment.

    I saw the beautiful leaves in reds and oranges. And a beautiful grey cat in my neighbor’s yard. I smelled fresh mown grass, cooking food and chimney smoke (one of my favorite smells). I heard a neighbor talking on the phone, on her porch, cars going by, dogs barking and garbage cans being pulled to the curb. I felt fresh air coming into my lungs, a cool breeze on my face and the sun on my skin.

    I’ve seen beautiful trees dressed in their fall colors, heard the squirrels and crows and jays calling out in alarm at the hawk cicling overhead, smelled the woodsmoke and fallen leaves, felt the warm sun on my face and tasted the crisp clean air.

    I see the leaves blowing in the wind, I hear the birds singing, and I feel the sun on my face.

    We are blessed to have a large backyard with wood and plenty of wildlife. A barn owl has been living nearby for the past few years. I like to take walks at dusk and listen to my friend hoot.

    He has not been around in the past few days, probably hiding out during the hurricane, but I enjoy listening to the wind and rain in his absence.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

    I love hearing the birds chirping, inhaling the crisp, cool air of autumn as I walk along my neighborhood trails enthralled with the gorgeous masterpiece of painted colored leaves!

    The warm sun rays are delightful and a nice contrast to the colder temps. The leaves are beautiful and the squirrels hunt for acorn while the birds sing away!

    The colors of autumn are gorgeous and breath-taking on the mountains and it’s so nice to stretch my legs in the cooler air enjoying the essence of a fall brisk stroll! Thanks so much!
