We take time to put on our clothes each morning. We should also take time to put on our body.
Try not to leave home in the morning without getting into your body first. Body Mindfulness work helps you to do this. Taking a few minutes minimum everyday to actually feel into your body can make a big difference to the quality of your day and mind.
You need to settle into your body like you are putting on your clothes. As you get in, you will feel what parts are comfortable to feel into and what parts are not. What parts need more attention, what parts and numb, what parts are stiff or flexible etc.
You are basically linking your awareness/spirit to your thinking mind and body.
When you don’t do this, you are more likely to have unfinished programs from the day before still running, clouding your mind and stressing your body. Especially the ones that run on automatic pilot because you haven’t paid them enough attention to realise they need switching off.
This is an over stressed way to live each day and it doesn’t have to be that way.
