How long can you stand on one foot without falling over? Try it with your other foot. Try to do it with your arms crossed. Try it with your eyes closed. Did that make it easier or harder to do?

Activity 2: Take a mindful walk

The practice of mindful walking is an opportunity to give our minds a break. We try to focus on the present moment with each step that we take. When we take a mindful walk, we are paying attention to how our body feels, our breathing and the nature around us.

How to take a mindful walk:

  1. Begin walking, a little slower than normal.
  2. Pay attention to each step that you take.
  3. Be aware of each breath.
  4. Breathe easily, but deeply.
  5. Use your 5 senses as you walk – what can you see, hear, smell, feel or taste?
