PS when's the last time you checked in with each part of your body? Here's a guide to how to go through your entire physical body to see where you may need some TLC
Check in with your body
Settle in to your body
Notice the state of your body
Start from the top
NOTICE IF YOU'RE CARRYING ANY TENSION IN YOUR HEAD, STAY THERE FOR A BIT IF YOU ARE, AND JUST BE AWARE OF HOW THAT TENSION FEELS AND HOW YOUR BODY REACTS TO IT... IS YOUR HEAD TENSE? OR YOUR NECK? IS YOUR FACE SCRUNCHED UP? SOFTEN YOUR FACE, BREATHE IN AND BREATHE OUT AND LET THAT TENSION GO IN WHATEVER DIRECTION YOU'D LIKE, BUT JUST LET IT FLOAT AWAY FROM YOU
NEXT LET'S CHECK IN WITH YOUR NECK, YOUR SHOULDERS, NOTICE ANY TENSION OR BLOCKAGE THERE? LET'S ROLL YOUR SHOULDERS FORWARD AND THEN BACK AND BREATHE IN AND OUT AT THE SAME TIME AND JUST RELAX INTO YOUR BODY A BIT MORE
NOW REPEAT THIS WITH YOUR MIDDLE, HOW'S YOUR STOMACH BEEN FEELING? ARE YOU HUNGRY? DO YOU HAVE AN APPETITE? IS THAT FOOD DIGESTING WELL? YOU CAN EVEN PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR STOMACH AND WARM IT UP A BIT AS YOU BREATHE IN AND OUT
KEEP MOVING DOWN TO YOUR HIPS, YOUR LEGS, YOUR KNEES, YOUR FEET
SCAN TO SEE IF YOU'RE HOLDING ANY TENSION AND BEGIN TO LET IT GO
Start to settle into your surroundings, feel the environment around you, feel the space around you and the power of your body in it, feel the potential you have.
There is so much potential in you and around you!
