Our box is about creating a space & routine to practice this in, but the great outdoors is a lovely way to incorporate mindfulness in your day to day.
The sound of the sea is one of the most calming sounds out there, and it’s no wonder that people download audio of the sea to help them sleep.
The sea is brilliant for mindfulness due to its repetitive sound and visuals. The sights and sounds of the sea can put your mind in a meditative state, which can improve mood and lower stress levels. So next time you have a walk on a beach, use this time to take 5 and practice mindfulness.
The forest is well known for improving your mental and physical health; check out our blog on forest bathing to find out more.
However forests are brilliant for practicing mindfulness due to the array on your senses with the sights, smells and sounds. Forests can heighten your experience due to the higher levels of oxygen present which aides breathing, and because of a chemical called phytonicdes which is a natural oil found in plants to protect against fungus, bacteria and insects, which been proven to have beneficial impacts on humans.
Taking time to focus on these senses and noises can be a great way to focus your mind and soak up nature.
If you can’t get out into a forest or to the sea, nature can still be found in cities to help practice mindfulness. Parks are great for sitting and listening to the sounds of the bees, the wind through the trees and other noises. Taking a 15-minute walk every morning can be a great way to start the day, and practice some mindfulness and get your body moving
