Brown Leaf Photo Meditation to Reduce Holiday Stress and Anxiety

November 20, 2014

Holiday season is just around the corner, and it means that the most stressful time of the year has arrived.

To get through the holidays healthy and happy you may need to reduce stress and anxiety. That is why I would love to share with you a Brown Leaf Photo Meditation to make you happier and less stressed out.

It has been cold for quite awhile, so all Autumn tree leaves are already on the ground. Did you have a chance to go outside and look around at the fall foliage that has left? Have you ever paid attention to the dry leaves? Not all leaves look dead and ugly, some of them are very beautiful and unique. The picture below can prove the beauty of a single dry leaf. And your task is just to look closely and  pay attention to all details of each picture. This exercise helps refocus which will reduce your stress level in no time.

Brown Leaf Photo Meditation

  • Sit comfortable. Close your eyes and take a couple of deep breaths.
  • Open your eyes and look at the photo of a dry leaf very closely.
  • Keep on breathing.
  • Notice small things that you have never seen or paid attention to before, including shape, color, etc.
  • Keep on breathing.
  • Try to think of nothing else but the leaf in front of you as long as you can. It will help you clear your mind and feel much better.
  • Keep on breathing.
  • Now look at the rest of the pictures. What month do you think they were taken? What was the temperature? Do you recognize the trees?
  • Keep on breathing.
  • Are you surprised with what you’ve seen so far? Are you amazed?
  • Keep on breathing.
  • When you are ready, take a couple of deep breaths and get back to your daily routine.
