What is Mindful Walking

One of the key benefits of learning the Mindful Walking Technique is to help you to connect with 4 of your body senses, that of sight, hearing, smell, and touch, in Nature. The experience trains you to bring your full attention into the present moment, guided by nature and the weather.  Most of our day is spent in our minds, our thoughts. We are busy running around both with little or no time to just enjoy BEING and relaxing quietly.  The nervous system is more often than not in Fight or Flight. 

What is involved on the Walk 

The start time for the 45 minute walk is 2.30pm meeting outside the Colne Valley Park Visitor Centre in Denham.  We will walk through beautiful countryside, mostly in silence. We will remain present by paying attention to all that we see, hear, smell and touch during our walk.

The walk is not designed to be  physically demanding at all. It is more focused on enjoying nature and connecting to our senses.

Summer is such a wonderful time to do a Mindful Walk. There is so much colour and vibrance in the air. We will be able to hear the birds and rustle of squirrels in the wooded areas. The air will smell fresh and earthy and we will feel a sense of abundance all around us. We will be aware of our  breathing as we walk and enjoy the sunshine and warmth that Summer can offer us.

Benefits of Learning Mindful Walking

1. Physical Health

Walking meditation is often used by people who sit for long periods. The walking practice helps to get the blood flowing, and helps to alleviate feelings of sluggishness or stagnancy.

Walking after eating is a fantastic way to improve your digestion and lose weight more easily. Outdoor walking improves the breathing and oxygen levels and contributes to a healthy, happy heart.

2 .Mental Wellbeing

If you’re looking to lower your stress levels, this is one of the most effective ways to reduce anxiety and the overthinking mind. Connecting mindfully with nature refreshes the mind and helps you to think more clearly and with a more open perspective.

3. Emotional Wellbeing

Mindful walking had been proven to help people reduce symptoms of depression. It helps to raise dopamine and serotonin in the body, balanced levels of both work to help people feel calmer and, more resilient emotionally and more relaxed.

4. Better Sleep

Any form of exercise is good to help improve sleep but mindful walking is particularly good as it helps develop a calmer and clearer mindset. 

5. Inspires Creativity

Being able to gradually release your thoughts and focus more on the present moment brings more clarity to your thought patterns, which in turn can stimulate creativity. Mindfulness practice can also enhance problem-solving skills or the cultivation of new ideas.
