What Is Walking Meditation?
Walking meditation is a form of mindfulness where you focus on being conscious and fully aware of the present moment while walking. It involves paying attention to your surroundings and the sensations you feel as you move.
As we go about our daily lives, we often forget to take a moment to slow down and simply be present. This technique can help us be more aware and focused in our everyday lives.
