In early 2017, it seemed like meditation was everywhere. Americans were having a hard time sleeping, and data indicated that stress and anxiety were at an all-time high. As a result, workplaces and people who had once deemed meditation too "woo-woo" started to embrace it head-on and set aside time in their day to simply sit and breathe.
While trends of sleeplessness and anxiety haven't gone anywhere, when the days are long enough that dining al fresco and running as the sun sets are viable options, the idea of sitting on a meditation cushion makes many of us restless.
Enter the moving meditation, the summer revamp your meditation practice needs. "The world is beautiful," meditation teacher and mbg class instructor Biet Simkin says. "And it's best if I shut up, get real present, and delight in it now. If you happen to be walking, that's an excellent time to meditate. I do it summer and winter, but summer is about enjoyment."
