This fall focus on the moment. Walk through any area with trees and leaves and make a conscious attempt to really experience the season. What’s not to love about crackling leaves, crisp air, and warm apple cider? Fall is the season of apple picking, pumpkin farms, apple cider donuts, cool fruity wines, crackling fires and beautiful warm, sunny days. But sometimes fall slips by too quickly. Somewhere in the midst of school starting, sports practices, piano lessons, and new homework the season is gone.

Try walking mindfully through any area with trees and leaves and make a conscious attempt to really experience what is around you. Notice the leaves. Notice with your full attention. As you watch try to identify the different ways the leaves move and rustle in a breeze and crackle when you step on them. Notice the smell and the details of the veins and coloring. Be conscious of each step you take. If your attention wanders, gently bring it back to your walking and your surroundings.
