Mindfulness Activity #156
Loving Kindness Independent Practice Week-Day 5
Good Morning. You have made it to Friday. A whole work week of practice. Take a moment to reflect. Are you able to notice any impact from your practice? Does beginning your day with a routine of Metta Practice shape your day or your responses to your day?
Stretch and breathe, settle yourself. First be sure that you actually feel warmth and joy spreading before you begin your practice…It’s important to start with whatever image or thought creates positive emotion for you… then begin the practice you have chosen to repeat each day. Again, I have again included all the links for ease of access to your practice
