Walking Meditation & How To Practice It

Walking Meditation….one of the easiest ways to relax is meditation. Research has proven that it can help relieve stress and relax.

But despite these benefits, it is hard to find time to practice. Fortunately there is a way you can enjoy the benefits of meditation without being forced to sacrifice too much time. You can do a little walk and you can relax through meditation.

To meditate while walking is not hard work and can be learned by anyone. Here are some steps to be taken in order to enjoy the benefits of walking meditation.

1. First you need to leave aside all that might distract you. This includes everything “tempting” such as iPod, mobile and things like that. This walk is a good opportunity to eliminate stress and frustration.

2. Before you start walking, you have to learn to be aware of your body, thoughts and ideas. Try not to pay attention to things around you and focus on your body and your movements. Be careful where your feet touch the ground.

3. Once you learn how your mind clears and you’re standing focus on balance. It’s time to learn to walk. During walking, trying to empty your mind of all thought and not paying attention to what happens around you, do not look strongly people or objects you come across. Be careful how you step. Observe the movements, how they touch the ground and how you feel your knees while walking. Becoming aware of how you feel and the different movements of your body is the best way to begin meditation.

4. During walking, you should know these things. Focusing on your body, you will be able to detach any stressors that affect you. Remember that during the walk should be relaxed, remove tension and stress which is reflected on your face. If your face shows anger, you will not be able to rinse your thoughts.

5. When you become relaxed, focus on your thoughts in the same way that you have studied the movements. What kind of emotion affects you most? Remember that just observe these things without wanting to confront them or to find solutions to problems.

6. While you focus on your mind, start to notice your feelings and emotions, you begin to feel truly relaxed, your mind and your body will become a whole.

Experts believe that this type of meditation is easier than traditional meditation and offers a chance to know yourself. Meditation helps you keep a clear mind, improves concentration, banish negative emotions and help you find your inner peace and happiness.
