WALKING MEDITATION



I have spoken on here before about the routine I try my best to do several times a week; gym, breakfast, shower, meditation and journaling. I feel better every time I meditate, even on days when I really don't feel like it, just going through the motions helps sometimes. I am a person who has to do guided meditation or else I am just setting myself up for fidgets and failure (although I am planning on trying some silent mediation soon, perhaps with an affirmation on 'loop' in my head!).

After a bit of a bad mental health blip recently I decided to switch things up a little bit to help me bring my focus back to what is important to me and not allow myself to get too 'in my head'. On Tuesday I took myself off for a little walk, just through our cute village and onto the coast path; doing that made such a big difference to my head and I felt a weight lift as I wandered along the path that hugs Mounts Bay and Perranuthnoe. Just standing and actually listening to the birds, waves and breeze in the hedgerows, and taking in the beauty of our planet, grounds me so much, and it is so healthy for me (for all of us).

On Wednesday I decided to do the same thing again... this time I focused, not only on the nature around me, but also on what was going on in my head; I tried to explore any 'signs' or messages I may be receiving and attempted to quiet my thoughts. For me, this seems to work better than just sitting still sometimes; the distraction of what's around me allows me to open up a little more without over thinking it.

I filmed a few bits and pieces from my walk for you guys too... I hope you enjoy it, if you do then please consider subscribing over on my YouTube channel, I'd love to see you there. Scroll past the video to see a few pictures from my walk too, it is so pretty, you should all visit Cornwall!

Have an amazing day!

  1. Lucy I adore this video so much, I think it's one I will keep going back to when I feel a calling for Cornwall and some calm. You've made me feel restored and rested.
    Sending lots of love and cat cuddles your way,

    1. Thank you SO much sweetie! I am so happy you like it. It's one of those times where I hadn't planned on making a video but got struck with the idea and it turned out so much better than I thought! :-) xx
