Contented & Balanced

Sit or… Walk for Balance 20 min  


Many people know of sitting meditation. Consider this walking meditation that will help you get in touch with your emotions and feel more balanced. Here are some tips:

  • Walking meditations are best done outside, or in a spacious room.
  • Set aside at least 20 minutes.
  • Minimize distractions by muting your phone or leaving it behind.
  • Choose a walking path that you are familiar with.
  • Begin walking at a slow, comfortable pace.
  • As thoughts come to your mind, gently let them go and return your focus to your surroundings.
  • When you feel ready, focus on the sensations you feel in your body (toes, ankles, knees, legs, shoulders, elbows, hands, neck, jaw, and face).
  • Remember to breathe deeply and find a comfortable breath rhythm.
  • Walk for as long as you’d like! Don’t be afraid to work your way up to longer meditations.
  • For added benefit, make a list of the things that you noticed on your walk once you’ve returned.
