Mindful Practices for Autumn
Every autumn, nature puts on a brilliant show of colors. Definitely fall brings different memories and feelings.
What is fall for you?
Is it a time for reflection and going within?
Or maybe the colors make you so vibrant and open-hearted that you want to spend most of your time outside and share your joy?
As the season alters your mood, being present is a little ‘Autumn Gift’ you can give to yourself to help experience inner peace and a feeling of being centered and connected.
Here are some Mindfulness Practices for Autumn:
- Walk slowly. Take breaks throughout the day, even for few minutes and walk slowly while looking at the trees. Pay attention to the colors, allow yourself to stop and enjoy the change of season. Stand in your backyard for 5 minutes, mindfully looking around.
- Drink your tea slowly. As the weather changes and it is less warm outside, treat yourself with some new teas, different flavors, different types and drink at least one cup of tea every day, Drink mindfully, noticing how the cup feels in your hand and paying attention to how it makes you feel, without doing anything else at the same time. Spend time with just you and the tea.
- Get centered by raking your leaves. Raking the leaves doesn’t have to be a forced job on your to-do-list. See it as an opportunity to use a repetitive motion, with a consistent sound supported by the beauty of the colors, as an act of centering. Be in the moment and allow your head to be clear of worries and concerns and to simply rake the leaves. It will relax you automatically.
- Start each day with your daily autumn intention: Today, I let go of.. and I welcome it!!! Remind yourself that the change of season is a letting go of the old and an invitation for the new to unfold. Every day, set the intention to let go of something small and invite something new into your life. Here are some examples. Please take it and make it your own:
I let go of hurrying and I welcome slowing down
I let go of being stuck and I welcome growth
I let go of old clothes and I welcome new ones
