Nature Walk

Stop Before You Start!
We rarely pause between activities. As a result, we can carry the stress and tension of a previous activity, conversation, or train of thought over into what we are about to do. Before setting off on your walk, take a few moments to allow yourself to come into the present moment.

Enjoy a few moments in silence as you look around and engage your sense of sight. 

Look up—explore the sky, the patterns in the clouds, the trees above. Look down—notice shadows, patterns in the dirt, colors, and textures on the ground. 

Now look closely at an object that catches your attention, such as a leaf or the bark on a tree. Gently observe its colors, shape, and texture. Look for subtle details you might have missed at first glance. Allow yourself to become really curious about what you’re looking at.

Wellness Tip of the Week

Not only is it important to take care of friends and loved ones, but it is equally as important to take care of yourself.

Experts say, "You can't take care of others until you take care of yourself". 


So spend one entire day on you. 

Sleep in.

Have lunch with a friend.

Play a video game.

Go get a massage.

Go for a walk in the park. 

Watch your favorite T.V. show or movie.

Play with puppies.

Grab a smoothie.

And listen to your heart and listen to your body...
       
                What does it need? What does it want?
