I started observing nature as I walked by the street which I take daily to get out of colony.
Problem is that I have already observed it throughly. There isn't anything that I haven't observed. Brain gets in auto pilot mode in such situations.
I tried to keep my attention on my shoes and thus counting my steps. This has a danger of me getting hit by something because I was looking down.
Where am I supposed to look and what am I supposed to think while doing mundane routine activities like sitting in an auto and moving on an already known default path? There is no stimulus for brain to do anything new.
I still have to be on my guards though. I don't want to reach in dreamland where I am totally unaware of what's happening around me.
I tried to focus on "Waiting for my thoughts to appear so that I can acknowledge them". This reduced anxiety and made me happy but this way I had forgotten that I was walking since the brain was on auto-pilot mode.
