There's a lot of panic in the air right now. When that happens I find myself getting carried away by my anxieties, and when that happens, I love to come back to this very simple walking meditation.
All you need is an anchor. ANY anchor - it could be, every time you hear birds. Or every time you hear a cell phone. Or every time you see a blue car. Or every time you reach the top of a staircase.
Pick one for the day. And every time you encounter that anchor, take a brief pause. Breathe in, breathe out. Feel your feet on the ground. Take note of where your mind has been.
And then keep on keepin' on.
I love this because it keeps me grounded THROUGHOUT the day, instead of checking in during my morning mindfulness routine, and then slowly falling apart as the day goes on.
Try it! See how it goes. And tell me what you experienced in the comments below.
