Sometimes it’s hard work to get in the calm mind-set that’s kind of crucial for a successful meditation sesh: You may feel anxious, super-distracted, or just plain fidgety. On those days, try taking your mindfulness practice outdoors; there’s a new meditation option that wants you to walk off your pent-up tension and stress rather than stay stationary.

Super successful mindfulness app Headspace just released an active mini meditation session on YouTube, and at just two-and-a-half minutes long, it may be all you need to feel at ease. Instead of closing your eyes and breathing deeply in one set pose, the walking exercise is designed to help you feel more connected to and present in your environment—be that the city, the country, or somewhere else far, far away.

As you walk at a steady pace, the video encourages you to focus on what you can see, what you can hear, and what you feel.

To try it, simply go outside and play the video through your headphones at a low enough volume that allows you to hear the meditation but still take in what’s happening around you. As you walk at a steady pace, the video encourages you to focus on what you can see, what you can hear, and what you feel. After just a couple minutes, you’ll likely notice that you feel more grounded, relaxed, and ready for your next challenge.

Ready to try the mini meditation for yourself? Just press play:

This is the best style of meditation for you, based on your wellness needs. Or, here’s how meditation can help ease pesky period woes.
