Sometimes the world moves so fast that we forget that one tiny minute can ground us and bring us some calm. Do this today.
Gently stop the physical and/or mental activity in which you are engaged. You might say the word 'Stop' out loud or to yourself.
Become conscious of your posture. Make a quick scan of your body from top to bottom. Release tension in face, shoulders, arms, hands. throat, chest, belly, legs, feet.
Take three full breaths, allowing for longer exhalations Focus your attention fully upon these breaths.
Scan your body, noticing sensations, feelings, areas of tension, anything and everything.
Go back to your activity
Did you do it? We're watching you.
Just kidding. That would be weird.
