Walk in the woods or any quiet place and focus on noticing everything that is coming to you through all of your senses. Notice the sights, sounds, and smells you encounter as you walk along. Feel the air on your skin and your feet on the ground. When you notice your attention has shifted to something outside of the present moment, gently bring it back. Be present in your daily chores. For example, do the washing up while focusing on nothing but the dishes, the water, the soap and your actions. Do art, such as drawing or painting. Be present to this activity and, if you notice your mind wandering, gently bring your thoughts back to the present moment and what you are doing.
