Walking Meditation

"Walking is man's best medicine" Hippocrates

"A walking meditation is simply taking the time out for yourself, time to get away from people and phones and break free from the stressors of everyday life to listen to your soul. As you walk, time your breathing to your steps. For example, inhale for four steps, hold your breathe naturally for one step, and exhale for four steps. Adjust your effort so that you don't have to keep changing your breathing. It is a good idea to simply count your steps, emptying your mind of all things other than the step count and breathing until you've mastered the process and it becomes innate. A walking meditation should be no less than 15 minutes. It is best to walk in nature, where you can benefit from the natural earth energies, experience a variety of colors and appreciate life forms in their natural rhythm." Paul Chek

I personally believe as coaches we should be advising people to walk and build a "human being base level of conditioning" before starting a program full of lifting, running, jumping, and sprinting. This is part of what it really takes to truly train GreenStrength - You better be okay with walking, alot! Give the walking meditation a try, you'll find it not only will enhance your mind but it will do wonders on your physique as well.

In Strength,
