Join Mary on a journey through the woods and take a break from your busy life to simply bask in the beauty of nature. On our mindfulness walk, we will explore the wild wonders that surround us and learn to appreciate the gifts that Mother Nature has given us. This is not your typical walk in the park. It’s an experience that will leave you feeling renewed, refreshed, and connected to the world around you.
As we stroll through the forest, we will take time to observe the wildlife around us and notice the different plants and their healing properties. With the arrival of spring comes new growth and our guided tour will take us to areas where we can see fiddleheads, ramps, and other plants that flourish this time of year. Along the way, we might even spot some animals like turtles, fish, and maybe even some nesting bald eagles.
Our mindfulness walk is not just about observing, it’s also about connecting with our surroundings. As we walk, we will practice being present in the moment and fully engaging our senses. Listen to the birds singing and the rustling of the leaves in the wind. Feel the sun on your skin or the cool breeze on your face. Let the fresh air fill your lungs and smell the sweet fragrance of wildflowers. This is your opportunity to immerse yourself in nature and let go of the stresses of daily life.
There’s more to being in nature than bliss, though (if that’s not quite enough). Research shows that mindfulness and forest bathing have significant health benefits. Spending time in nature has been shown to reduce stress levels, lower blood pressure, and even boost the immune system. Mindfulness practices like these can also help to reduce anxiety, improve focus and concentration, and increase feelings of happiness and wellbeing.
