Mindfulness Activity #161
Good Morning! Today’s practice is to greet your day thoughtfully. Before you begin anything else you need to do, before you even think about all that you need to do or want to do today, begin your day by connecting to your world in a connected and centered way.
Sit tall, stretch and roll your neck. Breathe in deeply and exhale. Then click this 5 minute timer and just breathe. Notice three chimes to begin. Following the third chime focus all your attention on your body-stretch your posture tall to greet the day. Connect with your experience by just breathing in and out with lengthened exhale. Feel your attention and connection grow deeper and stronger with each breath.
If you find yourself distracted, try to refocus on the feeling of the inhale of air into your lungs on the next breath.
After the practice is over. Sit for a minute to create recognition of your own calm, centered space. If you get disconnected during the day, refocus with breath to stay connected and focused.
