10 Minute Walking Meditation for Nervous People (an Election Day Special)

Summary

If you are currently dooms-day-scrolling, follow these instructions: 1.) Turn off notifications on your phone. 2.) Go for a walk. For those experiencing high levels of anxiety, walking may provide an easier transition to softness than seated meditations. Gentle, repetitive movement can harness the mind’s scattered energy, and channel awareness into the observation of sensation rather than the proliferation of potential outcomes. Whether you choose to walk throughout your home or around the block, walking reminds us to keep putting one foot in front of the other in pursuit of a goal. Whether you are alone this evening or with loved ones, you are supported by all those who walk in your direction. Take ten minutes for yourself tonight. 

(Fun fact: The walking meditation is the mindful cousin to my favorite nervous habit– pacing.)
