How to start a mindful run?
Before going out of your home set your intention. Be very clear about your purpose; then while putting your shoes on, give full attention to your feet. Feel them; honor them; be grateful for them and for all your body.
Once out, start to become very aware of your body, the air, the temperature and all the surroundings. Get into your body, your feelings and thoughts and focus on your movements. Observe your head and instead of putting away your thoughts just observe them andl et them be. Don’t beat yourself if your head is full… Is ok they will start to smelt out while you are mindfully running. ”
And then just start; one step at the time; Mindful; fully present. Here and Now. Enjoy your Run!
