How to be mindful: Walk in London’s Hyde Park

Mindfulness is a simple practice based on noticing the current moment and what is happening right now, rather than getting carried away with the stories and drama your mind often creates.

Travelling is one of the easiest ways to stay mindful. The new sights, sounds, smells and tastes make it easy to stay in the present moment, and Hyde Park is surely a wonderful place to see.


I am from Australia and I have never seen a squirrel running around a public park. It was fascinating to see. What a cute creature, so agile, running up the trees and almost bouncing as it ran.

Trees everywhere, green here and there, a beautiful big pond. What a fantastic place to see. On your walk around there are also some monuments, statues, cafes, a Princess Diana fountain and since Kensington Gardens are so close even Peter Pan joins in the feast for the eyes.

We stayed near Hyde Park and any time we wanted we just walked up to the stunning park, our kids ran around, we all played soccer, it is free and so is the peace it provides. You won’t find yourself lost in an irrelevant thought here, you will stay right in this moment.

It gets easier every day.
