Taking time to notice what your neighborhood sounds like can be a great low-barrier way to have a mindful moment. A simple exercise is to find a quiet spot in your home, close your eyes and begin to take note of all the different sounds you hear.
You may at first notice the obvious, like the birds chirping. But that will soon transition to the low-level rumble of traffic off in the distance (if you're in the city) or the sound of an airplane flying overhead.
Give yourself a minute to identify 5 sounds, and pay attention to them. Your mind may wander from what you hear, but try to bring it back to simply appreciating what you are hearing. This simple practice can feel incredibly grounding, and help connect you to your neighborhood in a deeper way.
