Meditating in Nature

Did you know that meditation appears in our every day lives, and in all different forms? Yep, that's right! There are likely some of your every day activities you partake in where you are practicing meditation and you don't even know it.

For me, I first discovered my meditation practice through hiking in different areas of Arizona. I loved taking the time for solo hikes to discover different trails that impacted my mind and body in a meditative manner.

Walking along the trail, I would take in every thing I saw, heard and also how I felt during the hike. When it was warmer out, it made me focus on breathing properly and engaging all of my muscles for a full body exercise.

As soon as I would get to the top of the mountain, I would take a seat, close my eyes and just breathe. In those moments I felt a strong sense of peace and also strength overcome me.
