An outdoor meander not only exerts the limbs, it can refresh the spirit — elevate your stroll into a contemplative retreat.
Disconnect to reconnect. If you want to soul search, leave worldly distractions behind. Turn off your phone. Take off your watch and let nature’s clock guide your walk. Let your mind — no longer shackled by immediate accessibility — wander into the refuge of clarity and reflection.
Saunter with songs. Use music to invite introspection. String and wind instruments, chants, or haunting vocals can enchant your senses and open your receptivity.
Focus on feedback. Ask for guidance or verbalize your intentions, then be still to listen for insight.
Share your spirit. Offer up good thoughts for those you encounter along your way. These also can uplift, invigorate, and inspire your own spiritual wellness.
