If you go to enough yoga classes you will eventually hear the phrase, “combine your movement with your breath. Think of it as a moving meditation”. Or something along those lines.
There are moments in my personal practice where I do feel I achieve this meditative state through my asanas, but it’s a rare occasion.
On the other hand, when I go for a walk I find that my mind almost always becomes clear and calm and I truly embody the concept of a moving meditation.
I love to walk and prefer it to any other form of transportation. Many times I talk on the phone or listen to a podcast, but the times where I unplug from my phone I find I am truly at peace.
Even on a chilly night like tonight, when I longed to be under a blanket watching tv, walking the dog as the sun set was a magical time.
I hope all of you can find that peaceful time in your day to give your mind a rest. Take some time and go for a walk, sit quietly or practice yoga.
Let me know what you do to find some peace.
