“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
– Thich Nhat Hanh
Our minds can be dominated by thoughts of past and future, regrets and anxieties and fear. Walking in itself has tremendous benefits for reducing stress. It’s an activity that in essence calls us to become present with what we are doing. We may walk with the intention of getting to a particular place, but we can receive the full power of walking when we do it without a destination in mind, fully into with the present moment and using our thoughts as tools for peace.
Walk as if you kissing the Earth with your feet, and cultivate deeper compassion for all life into your daily life. Your world – our world – will change.
