Labor Day is dedicated to rest, relaxation and celebrating all the effort we put into work.
This is a perfect opportunity to commemorate through a walking meditation in nature …
To begin, pick a familiar trail so you needn't worry about where your next step may lead, while reflecting inwardly on the benefits received in your life by giving "your all" to work.
Set out in an even rhythm such as taking 2 steps to breathe in and 2 steps to breathe out. Let your arms swing at your sides - right arm and left leg forward, then left arm and right leg forward. This practice develops right-left brain synchronicity.
Walking along in stride let your thoughts turn to appreciation for all gained in life by your labors, such as the essentials of life for yourself and family, and the companionship of coworkers and colleagues.
Appreciation lifts the spirits, and combined with a walking meditation - sets the stage for peace and harmony at home and work.
"Walking along, attuned, in time,
Walking along, feeling fine."
I invite you to join me in a daily group cyber meditation for personal and planetary peace. Click the article here to read about it.
