Mindful Walking

Yesterday saw the final mindfulness session with Dr Andrew Lewis at Libanus Lifestyle. Over the past six sessions, we have practised how to calm the body and mind, the body scan, living in the moment, mindful eating, and for our final session, mindful walking.

Mindful walking is the practice of becoming aware of your surroundings and how your body and mind feel while moving. How do you practice mindfulness when walking? Walk at a natural pace. With each step, pay attention to the lifting and falling of your foot. Notice movement in your legs and the rest of your body. Whatever else captures your attention, come back to the sensation of walking.  Members and volunteers have enjoyed every session – especially mindful eating with chocolate – and are practising mindfulness often. Thank you Dr Andrew Lewis for everything.
