Is there anything more beautiful than a spring day in Minnesota? You know the ones, perfect temperature, green grass with tulips in full bloom. Now that spring has finally sprung, I want to share my favorite mindfulness practice—a walking meditation.

Walking meditation is essentially turning a walk into a mindful meditation practice. Take slow, purposeful and deliberate steps and open yourself up to your surroundings. Experience those spring days through your senses. With each step, focus on what you see, hear, feel, smell and even taste. Just be present with the sensation of walking. It’s a great way to unplug and be present in nature, which has a whole list of benefits in and of itself. If you have children, walking meditation is a fun family activity.
