GIFT BOOK MINDFUL THOUGHTS FOR WALK­ERS

Countryfile Magazine - - Lazy Days -

From epic long-dis­tance walks to a short stroll in your lunch break, walk­ing gives us chance to free the mind and “en­ables us to un­der­stand our place in the world of na­ture,” writes Bud­dhism and Hin­duism lec­turer Adam Ford. This beau­ti­fully il­lus­trated pocket-sized book en­cour­ages the walker to pause for thought and sim­ply be in the mo­ment. Ford ex­plores how walk­ing can im­prove our men­tal health and re­flects on how walk­ing in nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ments awak­ens our senses. Ford also en­cour­ages walk­ing for the sake of walk­ing as a way of mo­men­tar­ily leav­ing the busy­ness of daily life behind. Carys Matthews
