Mindfulness Three Point Check In:
Feeling everything from this weekend is so difficult–we have to give ourselves some space and time to hold it. We invite you to try this mindfulness moment:
- Come to a place of stillness, standing, sitting, lying down
- Give yourself a moment to be still…maybe notice your feet on the floor, the support of the chair/bed…and just be there for a moment
- Sense that your body is breathing….
- Then, move your attention, on purpose to…
Checkpoint #1: Your Body–scan through from head to toe–what do you notice? Tension? Ease? Tightness? Soreness?
Checkpoint #2: Your mind: go inside your mind and notice your thought patterns….scattered? Busy? Neutral? Don’t get caught there, just acknowledge and move to…
Checkpoint #3: Your emotions–anything in particular calling out to you today? Notice…honor it…
Now you know who you are and what you are bringing to your next moments today….take care of you before you begin again….
Making Movement Mindful:
In this mindful movement practice, which is part of our course Find Calm and Nourish Resilience, Cara Bradley invites us to celebrate our physicality and better connect with our breath and our body.
The goal of this practice is to invite a feeling of calm, stability and ease. Take a few minutes for yourself to move mindfully.
