Today’s Mindful Moment

Bring your attention inward to your breath. Is it fast and shallow or slow and heavy?  Slowly breathe in for the count of 5, hold for 5 counts and exhale for 5 counts and hold.  Do this 5 times.  Are you feeling more centered? Today show yourself loving kindness.  Celebrate your accomplishments, forgive your imperfections and mistakes, feel your feelings, be truly present, speak kindly to yourself and nurture yourself.  Check in with yourself, how are you feeling?  My wish is that you feel calm and centered.

Embrace the moment!

Today’s Mindful Moment

Bring your attention inward to your breath. Is it fast and shallow or slow and heavy?  Slowly breathe in for the count of 5, hold for 5 counts and exhale for 5 counts and hold.  Do this 5 times.  Are you feeling more centered?  Continue to breathe slowly as you bring the image of an individual you have difficulty with into your mind, someone who may test your patience or get under your skin.  Try to observe their face through your mind’s eye.  Try to visualize details of their face, the color of their eyes, perhaps the shade of their hair.   Keep them in your mind as you bring a smile to your face and wish them unconditional happiness, repeat the following:

May you be Happy!

May you be Healthy!

May you be Safe!

May your life be filled with joy!

Check in with yourself, how are you feeling? For some this is a very difficult exercise, be kind with yourself and don’t judge your feelings, acknowledge them and let them go.

My wish is that you feel calm, centered and compassionate.

Embrace the moment!

Today, I want you to go outside and breathe in the air; bring mindful awareness to your breath and the fresh air you are inhaling. Be fully present in this moment and inhale deeply.  Be aware of the air as it fills your lungs, does the air feel warm or cool, heavy or dry, is there a sweet scent to the air.  Breathe in deeply and calm your body and mind.  Breathe out and smile.  Check in with yourself, how are you feeling?  My wish is that you feel calm and centered.

Embrace the moment!
