Activity 2 – Mindful Walk

The practice of mindful walking is an opportunity to give our minds a break. We try to focus on the present moment with each step that we take. When we take a mindful walk, we are paying attention to how our body feels, our breathing and the nature around us.

How to take a Mindful Walk:

1. Begin walking, a little slower than normal.

2. Pay attention to each step that you take.

3. Be aware of each breath.

4. Breathe easily, but deeply.

5. Use your 5 senses as you walk – What can you see, hear, feel, smell and taste?

Activity 3 – Specialist Activities.

Don’t forget to complete your Art, Mandarin, Music and P.E. tasks! You can also visit the Birralee STEM Blog for more fun and hands-on activities.
