When was the last time that you set out to explore the outdoors? Do you do it mindfully?
Creating a mindful experience of exploring the outdoors is actually quite simple, and it’s really amazing to engage your little ones in this mindful practice as well. It’s all about appealing to your sense.
What can you hear?
What can you smell?
What do you see?
What can you feel?
Encourage your little ones to try this activity once with their eyes open, and then again with their eyes closed.
How does their perception change? Are they, and you, able to tune in more acutely and listen for the wind in the trees? Feel the warmth of the sun? Smell the freshly cut grass?
Getting outside and exploring is all about taking in the details. Make it your mindful motherhood moment this month!
