Happy National Garden Meditation Day


Hello there,

Welcome to the month of May flowers. Today, May 3, is Garden Meditation Day, a day that encourages everyone to take time for themselves and relax in nature.

So, if there's ever a day to take a break and go outside-you got it, it's today!

By the way, meditation doesn’t always have to take place cross-legged on the floor. Working in the garden, tending to the plants and flowers, or resting quietly on a bench all count as meditation because they are restorative to the soul and a refreshing way to embrace nature, stay healthy, and gain a fresh perspective.

Here's how to do Meditation Outdoors:

  • Let your eyes be soft as you take in colors, shapes, textures, light, and shadows. This is very restful for your eyes, your mind, and your spirit.

  • Open your inner ears, allowing the sounds around you to filter in and out, without attaching a story to the sound. Meaning, if you hear a bird singing, let that sound come in one ear and out the other without figuring out which bird is singing. Or, if you live in the city like I do, when a truck barrels its way down the street, let go of placing annoyance on that particular sound, or labeling it as a negative, interfering sound.

  • Allow the sounds entering your ears to filter through from one ear and out the other.

  • Breathe easily and naturally- in and out of your nose.

  • Notice how relaxing with nature affects your mind, your emotions, your breathing, and your body.

I hope you can enjoy some of your day spending time relaxing in a garden. I'll be soaking up some nature, the sounds of birds, and fresh air today with a visit to my local Botanic Garden.


What about you? Which garden will you relax and meditate in today?
