The art of walking meditation is not as popular as traditional methods of meditation where you sit down in a form of a cross-legged position. However, walking meditation can prove to be more accessible and easier to renew your inspiration and energy.
When you engage in walking meditation, you'll be using some of the same principles as regular meditative practice.
Here are some tips to use when beginning with meditation:
Walking meditation differs from regular meditation in a few core ways. The most obvious is the fact that you're walking instead of staying still. This is beneficial for those who think more clearly when they're moving around.
Also, when you practice walking meditation, you can eventually engage in meditation as you complete day-to-day tasks. This is useful because you won't always have enough time for a standard meditation session.
Use these strategies to enhance your experience as you begin walking meditation:
It's a good idea to master the art of walking meditation before trying to bring your regular meditative practice into your everyday living. Doing so will give you a better idea about what it's like to meditate while your body is in motion.
While you won't be able to meditate while you're talking or engaging in activities that you're not familiar with, you can start to make it a part of your daily routine, whether it be in the mornings during your commute or during your lunch break.
Walking meditation and regular meditation have the power to get you in touch with your true emotions. Some people are unsure about what they're feeling and may end up repressing feelings or acting out in anger. Your emotions will generally rise up during a walking meditation session, which is why it's a good idea for you to engage in these meditation sessions often.
With continued practice, you'll find a powerful tool in your life that can calm, refresh, inspire, and motivate you wherever you go!
