We get caught up in what we must do today and carry the burden of yesterday that we forget to stop and truly become aware of what is happening in the present moment and how it’s affecting us both physically and emotionally.
enable us to refill our cups to consciously live happier lives.
Setting aside 1 minute every day to check in and truly absorb the present moment will not only allow us the space to breathe but also aid in shifting our level of consciousness as we go about our daily lives.
Find a comfortable space free from distraction.
Come to find a comfortable seat, allow your shoulders to move away from your ears as you lengthen your spine.
Gently become aware of your inhale and exhale. Without any judgement become aware of the nature and length of your inhale and exhale.
Now assign a count to your breath. Inhale for a count of 3 and exhale for a count of 3. Repeating for 3 cycles.
With every inhale become aware of thoughts and emotions and with every exhale let go of those thoughts gently allowing the mind to settle in this state of calmness.
Letting go of the count gently allow the breath to return to normal. Become aware once again of your surroundings as you resume your daily tasks. Remember that the very act of self-love is giving ourselves what we need to be happy and healthy beings.
