3 Ways to Use Outdoor Activities to Create Mindfulness
Mindfulness is a practice which involves concentrating on the here and now. The reason that mindfulness is so popular is due to the ease implementing mindfulness techniques, and of course, the positive outcome.
Here are 3 mindfulness techniques that you can implement every day.
Does Rock Climbing Creates Peace of Mind?
Mindfulness has been proven to reduce stress because you learn how focus your mind on the here and now.
A group of friends and myself go rock climbing on a regular basis. One of my friends, when rock climbing, was able to really push himself climbing really tricky climbs. I asked what made him such a good climber. He explained; his work was very demanding and stressful.
Most day’s after work, he would go home and stress about the days problems. But when rock climbing his focus was on the here and now, the climb itself. If he didn’t focus on the climb he would fall off, the by focusing on the here and now the stress disappeared.
What you focus on you feel. Mindfulness teaches to focus on one thing, such as your breathing, if you focus only on your breath, you create a sense of peace inside of you.
Create New Perspective From a Hike
When hiking in the hills and mountains, you will often climb to a peak and marvel in the wonderful and beautiful views of nature. This alone can be stress reducing
But you don’t have to climb to a height to see wonderful images of nature.
Look closure. When hiking you will walk past flowers, trees and wild shrubs. Hidden in these will be numerous insects, bugs , birds and mammals. Instead of ignoring these, sit down and look with a new perspective. Get close and up front, by looking more closely you will see things that you cant see from walking past. This new insight, new perspective will create a fondness of the same flowers.
In a town, when the rain starts we simply run inside.
When out in nature completing any outdoor activity you are often caught in nature. Rather then run, embrace. Lift you head and feel the rain on your face. Feel the wind blowing through your hair. Sit down a smell all the beautiful frequencies of nature.
By embracing your senses, you become aware of whats happening around you, enjoying life and what the world has to offer.
