Today’s mind practice focuses on healing your core Muscles.
I’m not sure why, but whenever I go walking in the woods I am instantly invigorated.
There’s something about it that changes ME.
In Botany Class in college we studied the importance of trees and plants to our planet. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, “A tree has the ability to provide an essential of life for all living things on our planet – oxygen, and the power to remove harmful gases like carbon dioxide making the air we breathe healthier.” (https://www.usda.gov/media/blog/2015/03/17/power-one-tree-very-air-we-breathe)
Trees DO make a difference.
So, even though this is a workplace practice (exercise), if you have the opportunity to go outside where there are trees, it will be very helpful.
If you are unable to go outside (maybe because it’s raining), imagine you are sitting in the woods.
In your real or imaginary space there are trees. You see glimpses of sunlight through the trees.
You feel a gentle breeze.
Breathe deeply. Let your breath be regular and steady.
Give yourself permission to relax Your core muscles.
While you breath, be grateful for trees and plants. Remember how much they help our planet.
Stay in that moment for as long as you can.
If you were unable to walk outside, do take a walk in the woods when you get the chance.
It WILL heal you and remember to be grateful for trees.
Be Grateful, Deborah
