Let us whisk you away to the beautiful Isles of Scilly with our island soundscape and mindfulness tips
In these uncertain times, we’re encouraging our Seasalt community to take a moment to stop and breathe.
This soundscape recorded on our field trip to the Isles of Scilly will whisk you away to the archipelago’s peaceful white sand beaches. Put the sound on, sit back, and relax.
If you are able to, getting outside and appreciating nature can bring some much-needed perspective. Here are some ways to make your time outside more mindful…
Use all your senses
Using the time for meditation can be as simple as paying more attention. Listen to all the sounds – nearby and far-off. Tune into your sense of smell and breathe in all the scents of spring outdoors. Feel your connection to the earth with every step.
Notice the beauty on your doorstep
Train your eyes to be curious about your surroundings. The signs of spring are everywhere, from new buds on the trees and returning birds, to daisies pushing their way up through cracks in the pavement. Observe shape, texture and colour. To help you look at your environment in a fresh way, you could photograph or sketch the details you see.
Keep a nature diary
To help you look at your environment in a fresh way, you could photograph the details you see and make a sketch of them when you get home. See what changes you can spot each day, you’ll be amazed at how quickly things come back to life at this time of year.
