Nature Connection Challenge - Day 53 - Practice Stealth
If you spend time observing nature, you will see that many animals go about their business right under our noses. We often don’t notice them because they have perfected the art of stealth. Predators in particular have adapted ways to stalk their prey without being heard or seen. Meanwhile, most humans walk loudly without noticing the ways we disrupt the quiet order of nature.
Today’s challenge is to practice walking stealthily through a natural landscape. Here are some ideas:
Try walking through grass, wooded areas or sand without making any noise. Try taking off your shoes and tuning into the sensations on the soles of your feet.
Try walking slowly and carefully and notice if you can move in a way that doesn’t disrupt the natural behaviors of the animals around you. Slow down, bring your energy close to the earth, become part of the landscape.
If you are walking with someone else, take turns trying to sneak past one another without being detected.
