Practicing mindfulness in nature can be a wonderful experience. Opening up your senses to your surroundings, taking in the sounds, the smells, the light, the beauty in the details, for when the mind is still enough, the details of nature will become amplified, and you may feel more at one with your surroundings through your senses. The wind in the trees, a light breeze touching your skin, some bird singing, the shape of a raindrop on a leaf, and the details within the raindrop. The smell of the air after rain, and the rays from the sun through the trees. Find yourself a quiet place in nature, where you can sit undisturbed. Relax your shoulders and try to have a tall spine. Notice your breath and relax your face. Then, through your senses start taking in nature. Soon you will feel more peaceful and relaxed. Do this as often as you can to maintain your connection to nature and to yourself. You can of course do walking mindfulness meditations also. Make sure to walk slowly.
