WALKtober Day 24

Peace and health to you and yours as we move in the the last week of WALKtober. ; ) I am so grateful to have been moving alongside you this month. Today's invitation, as you might imagine, is rooted in making an intentional connection to the rising sun while walking or rolling. 

Day 24: Sunrise Walk (on your Bingo Card)

Daily Task: Protect time today, tomorrow, or in the remaining days ahead to move with, be with, and connect with the wisdom, color, and essence of a rising sun. If you are a morning person, then you might naturally flow into this invitation. If you are not a morning person, it might take some extra effort to get up in time or to feel motivated to get outside during this time!

You might not open this email until it is past sunrise time. If this is the case, consider marking your calendar to move with the sunrise tomorrow, October 25, or on one of the remaining days in October. 

Your Movement: If you can, plan to start your movement at least 20-30 minutes before the actual sunrise. I've listed sunrise times below for the rest of October according to Mountain Time Zone in Denver, Colorado, U.S.A. As you move, notice slight changes in sky colors and cloud patterns moving through the sky. Notice tree silhouettes. Notice the way the sun beams and shines on branches, leaves, and plants as it begins to rise. As the sun rises, notice what is arising in you as you continue to move.

  • What is stirring for the day ahead?
  • What observations have you made or are you making related to your life journey and a rising sun?
  • How does it feel to be moving and awake as the sun invites all living things to rise for the day? 

Be with these questions. Move with them. More than anything, listen to and honor all that comes from our powerful, complex, mysterious, and blazing sun.

Also! {Reminder} Day 25: WALKtober NO-TECH Sunday (FREE DAY - Not on your Bingo Card)

We want to encourage you to give social media, emails, text messaging, and youtube watching a small intentional rest. Even shooting for Tech-less is a win. Here are some ideas to make it easier. 

* Silence your phone or put it on do not disturb
* Turn it off! It is so much easier to not check it when it's not even on. 
* Leave it in another room/car for a set time. 

Flow with this invitation. We want you to still meet with family via zoom calls or if you have to work, we understand. This is a call to step away from distractions and re-connect with ourselves. 

This could be a great day to move with the Sunrise Walking practice in case you caught the email after sunrise on the 24th. ; )

It can also be a great way to catch up on missed days! #lifeat3MPH
