Consistent meditation provides the framework for mind-body wellness and brings more awareness into our daily lives. Regular practice can give a better quality of sleep and relationship skills, heighten concentration, lessen stress, and a host of other widely known benefits.
However, daily meditation doesn’t have to mean sitting quietly. Walking meditation, also known as mindful walking, is an active practice that requires you to be moving and consciously aware of the environment rather than sitting down with your eyes closed. It’s an easy and satisfying meditation method that can be especially valuable for beginners or anyone who prefers a more active form of meditation.
Mindful walking can lead to some extra benefits compared with its seated equivalent. The practice carries you closer to nature as well as your body.
Here are just 6 of the extra benefits you will find by incorporating walking meditation/mindful walking into your routine.
