Lately, meditation has been about not plugging in my headphones when I’m walking. It’s casually looking at silence, or the sounds actually around me, and having that be enough. It’s slowing down, not needing to fill every nook and cranny. Life is OK, played at a more patient speed.
On the other end, I’m trying to get my heart rate up and high a bit more often, too. I’ve had a good exercise routine for the past few years, though I grew averse to huffing and puffing and moving about quickly. My calves need some serious work, but already it seems to be working.
