Get set for the week ahead with nature
It’s the end of a long week and you’re looking to re-set your batteries. Xochi’s top tip? Take off your shoes.“Walking in the park instantly reconnects you with nature and brings you back to the present,” she says. What’s more, it will leave you feeling grounded and revitalised – perfect for the following week.
How to do it:
1. Focus on your breath and the sensation of inhaling and exhaling.
2. Turn your attention to the noises of nature surrounding you, both near and far away, and to the texture of the ground beneath your feet.
3. Tune into each toe, each heel, each pore of your foot that is connecting with the earth and absorbing its life force – let nature root you in the here and now.
