So maybe you’ve decided to take a quick walk….now what?
How about tracking a color or pattern. I love this list for a Fall Nature Walk from Hearts and Leaves. Noticing every time you see leaves that certain shade of yellow. Keeping track of all the purple accents you come across. Counting the times you can spot polka dots.
Tracking something–anything!–takes us out of ourselves. The constant whir of thoughts and worries finds something else to occupy itself with. And when we have a bit of distance, those worries can become prayers. Prayers that leave us transformed.
