Taking a walk in nature without your phone is almost so simple that it seems silly, yet you’ll be amazed at how good it feels to disconnect from your device and reconnect to yourself and life around you. Below are a few simple steps to make the most out of your wander:
– Leave your phone at home or in the car.
– Choose your favourite route, or explore a new location to awaken your senses.
– Try to stay out of your own thoughts, if you find your mind wandering try to bring it back to the present moment, focus in on the sounds of the birds, the breeze on your skin or the scent of a nearby plant.
– Take as long or as little as you need to ground yourself in nature and take a well-deserved technology-free break.

One of the best ways to support your agni is with cleansing recipes like this nourishing green soup with crispy chickpeas.
Ayurveda places great emphasis on our body’s ability to digest food. Emily Rees, Vedic meditation teacher and Ayurvedic recipe developer Emily Rees explains:
“Ayurveda flips the common phrase ‘you are what you eat’ on its head and states ‘you are what you digest’. It’s all well and good to smash a big kale salad, but if your agni is weak and unable to digest it, it ends up causing more harm than good. Instead of loading up on ‘healthy’ but hard-to-digest foods, we nourish and stoke the fire of our digestion with fresh, cooked and warm foods.”
One of the most nurturing ways to do this in winter is with warming soups. Who doesn’t want to come home after a long to to a warming bowl of goodness? This cleansing green soup is a blend of potatoes, spinach, chickpeas, coconut yoghurt and a handful of spices and herbs, making it a protein-rich and balanced meal.
Adding Wanderlust Prebiotic Gut Goodness makes this soup even more nutritiously dense, as it is a plant powered powder prebiotic rich blend containing an organic blend of prebiotic Green Banana & Jerusalem Artichoke.
Well done – Day 6 is complete.
How were you left feeling after your unplugged walk?
Did it evoke a sense of calm or were you left feeling slightly agitated or anxious?
Sometimes disconnecting from the world by going technology free can be daunting. It takes practice to be comfortable without your device always by your side. But your commitment to the cause will help you feel “un-bound” over time. This will allow you to be more present in the moment not only whilst out exploring, but also when connecting with family and friends.
