Hi, I'm Alex

 


I wish i could say that I have always been a "mindful walker". My life would probably have been a little easier if that were the case. But, like most people, I discovered a better, easier, happier way to approach life only after I hit a low point. I go into more detail on this in my  book The Mindful Walker, but suffice it to say that the changes this practice has unleashed in my life - including my body, mind, and spirit - are nothing short of miraculous

Turns out, I just needed to go outside to really go inside.

Today, I know that everything we need to handle anything life throws at us is already inside of us. We just need a way to bring it back to the surface, out from under all the busyness and worry of our everyday lives. That's where I come in. If you want:

  • A path to less stress and more joy on even the worst days
  • A way to nurture your spiritual side that doesn't feel "woo woo"
  • Clearer, more focused thinking, more of the time
  • Stronger, more honest relationships
  • A deep connection to the creative force that supports all living things
  • A simple, inexpensive, and sustainable way to stay fit for life

Then I'm here to help you! 

I'm living proof that our lives can be healthier, happier, and more peaceful than we realize if we're willing to reconnect with and learn to listen to that deep, inner voice. As it turns out, the very best place to do that is in the natural world. 

Through my book, my videos, and my blog, I'm working to bring this message to folks (maybe like you?) who are mired in the day-to-day craziness of modern life. Here's what i want you to know: It doesn't have to be so hard. When your mind is clear, you create space for Wisdom, Insight, and Intuition and life suddenly gets a whole lot easier, more peaceful, and more fun! I would love for you to join me on this journey.

the long and wondrous journeys, still to be ours.

My Professional Bio

Alex Strauss is an author, editor, speaker and creative entrepreneur. She is a graduate of Wake Forest University and holds an MA in Journalism and Public Affairs from American University.  A former television anchor/healthcare reporter, Alex has taught public speaking and composition at the college level and has published an award-winning regional business magazine for medical professionals since 2000. After years of believing she was actually the one "holding the reigns" in her busy life - and nearly burning out because of it - she came to understand, through reading, study, and miles of walks in nature, that a bigger and more powerful Universal force "has our back", regardless of our circumstances or frame of mind. 

The Mindful Walker is her effort to share this understanding and her simple, time-tested method for tapping into this force. Alex launched the "The Mindful Walker" YouTube channel in 2014 and published her bestselling inspirational guidebook, The Mindful Walker, through Amazon in 2016. In October 2016, she was a featured teacher at the 2016 Fifty Forward Life conference in Western North Carolina.

Alex walks in the beautiful Piedmont region of North Carolina where she lives with her husband, two daughters, three dogs, three cats, a gecko and assorted fish (not to mention the wildlife!) She holds a membership to most North Carolina museums, bakes a mean scone, plays the Celtic drum, and still uses her library card regularly.
