Autumn Mindfulness Hunt

Autumn Mindfulness Hunt

Autumn is a great time for nature walks. There’s so much to see, feel and hear – the crisp air, leaves changing colors, the earthy smells. It’s easy to get distracted and lost in your thoughts on a nature walk, so sometimes we need to bring intention to our walks. Intention to stay mindful and present in the moment. We can also find ways to connect nature to our mindfulness walks.

As the winter days wind down and the spring weather approaches, many come out of hibernation. The spring season is often a time for children to play outside, participate in outdoor sports, and just enjoy the feeling of being outside in the fresh air. However, during this warm and bright season, it can also be a time of anxiety for children – standardized testing, midterms, and school is coming to an end soon. Practicing yoga and taking time for mindful activities can help combat the stressors of anxiety.

Learning in Different Ways Is NOT a Failure

I saw children participating. Moving without fear of mockery. My husband reflected on it saying how free they looked. They didn’t seem self conscious at all. As a juxtaposition he noticed the parents walking about the festival. He pointed out that the parents were rushing, stressed, and facing the all too real financial constraints of life, having to say no the children’s many (many many many) requests for them to buy books.
