Tracking the Seasons | Scenes from my Daily Walk

Getting out into nature is medicine for my soul, and yet, it's something that often gets pushed to the bottom of my priority list. This autumn I set the intention to get out and walk more - we are lucky enough to have a beautiful nature reserve right on our doorstep so there's really no excuse! 

This morning I wrapped up warm, donned my walking boots and headed out. Within minutes I could feel myself relaxing and releasing all I had been holding onto so tightly. I always used to listen to music or a podcast whilst walking but today I had nothing but my thoughts and the chirp of the birds for company.

The bright red Hawthorne berries lined the path and the morning sun was low in the sky, it was glorious. Walking is a form of meditation for me, it's how I clear my head and get back into my body. Walking by myself is a completely different experience to walking the dogs - they can be quite a handful so slipping out for a walk without them is a simple pleasure. 

I've decided to capture a little of my daily walks on video and track how the landscape changes with each season.
