1. Go for a walk.
While you’re putting on your walking shoes and getting a bottle of water, etc. etc., listen to the song Happy by Pharrell Williams. This will help to uplift you and get a positive vibe in motion.
2. Breath deep and listen.
While you’re walking be conscious of your breath. Listen to the birds, the wind in the trees, whatever sounds surround you. Let your thoughts, worries, plans and concerns go.
3. Observe, feel and smell.
Observe your environment. Notice beauty. Take it in without judgment or inner commentary. Feel the air against your skin. Smell Spring.
4. Be still and stay awhile.
Find a place to sit or lay on the earth, preferably a quiet area with wild flowers. Remove your shoes. Let your bare feet connect to the earth. Allow the earth to literally ground you.To learn more about grounding read the book, Earthing by Clinton Ober, Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D. and Martin Zucker. Be still and stay as long as you can.
