How To Do A Gratitude Walk
Did you know that gratitude is not an attitude in our mind?
It is a feeling. It resonates in the physical body. It rises from the recognition of love, of goodness, and of grace.
Given that next week is Thanksgiving here in the US, why not focus on the good things in our lives? Let's get out of our heads and into our hearts!
One way to do that is to commit to a regular gratitude walk. Here's how to do it. Begin with your intention - to focus on gratitude.
Take a few deep breaths before you walk. Look around, get present and begin walking .
As you walk, consider the many things for which you are grateful, as in nurturing relationships, material comforts, a body that allows you to experience the world, a mind that allows you to really understand yourself, and your essential spiritual nature.
Breathe, pause, and be grateful for the air that is filling your lungs and making your life possible.
Pay attention to your senses—everything you’re seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling, and maybe even tasting—and see how many things you can find to feel grateful for.
This is a powerful way to shift your mood and open to the flow of abundance that always surrounds you.
