A Simple Mindfulness Exercise To Try
Set a few minutes aside, find a comfortable and safe place to be. Close your eyes, or just try not to focus on anything.
Turn your attention slowly and deliberately to each part of your body. Focus on your body in order, from toe to head or head to toe.
Become aware of any sensations, emotions or thoughts associated with each part of your body. If you notice pain or uncomfortable feelings, acknowledge them, and gently try and breathe through them, try to relax this area.
This exercise, although simple in its nature, doesn’t always feel easy or possible. Try it regularly for a while, it does get easier.
