Focus on mindfulness this autumn


Incorporating mindfulness into the autumn season can be a serene and enriching practice. Here are some ways Hopewood recommends you can do this:

Mindful walking: Take walks amidst the falling leaves and pay attention to the crunch underfoot, the colours around you, and the cool air against your skin. This practice helps ground you in the present moment.

Seasonal eating: Eat seasonal produce mindfully – like pumpkins, apples, and squash. Savour the flavours and textures, and appreciate the nourishment they provide.

Gratitude journaling: Reflect on the day’s events each evening, writing down things you’re grateful for. Autumn’s association with harvest can inspire appreciation for life’s abundance.

Meditation with elements: Use the elements of autumn in your meditation. For instance, meditate on the sound of rain or visualize the vibrant autumn hues during your practice.

Declutter space: As the deciduous trees shed their leaves, take this cue to declutter your space. A clean environment can lead to a clearer mind.

Creative expression: Engage in creative activities like drawing, writing, or crafting with autumn themes. This can be a mindful exercise that also celebrates the season’s beauty.

By engaging in these practices, you can cultivate a mindful approach to life that harmonises with the essence of autumn, enhancing your mental and physical wellbeing.
