The Mindful EYE program is also a good way for you and your family to unplug and reconnect with the natural world. And it’s great family fun – tech-free (we use non-WiFi digital cameras). As you know, people today of all ages spend more sedentary time in front of TV/computer/tablet and mobile phone screens than they do being outside in nature. Aimless wandering, Mindful EYE style, is a good way to disconnect from electronics, get outside and reconnect with ourselves, each other and the natural world.
Protecting children and nature, and their interconnectedness is one of the reasons why we need to live with mindfulness in this digital age.
