C.A.L.M Feelings

Notice sensations (or even emotions) right now in your...

Chest...

Arms...

Legs...

Mind...?

What is happening?  Where is it happening?  Why is it happening?  How can we change what is happening in our body?  Asking yourself these questions after doing our C.A.L.M. Feelings body scan can help to identify a way to make everything you're feeling go away!  By always coming back to our breath, we allow our mind and body to relax and slow itself down.  Now might be a good time to practice using an 'anchor word' or words.  Let your eyes close here, and try saying "breathing in" and "breathing out" as you inhale and exhale.  Focus your attention on the rise and fall of your belly, expanding as you inhale and sinking in as you exhale.  Let's see if we can lengthen our breath... "Breathing in, 2, 3, 4" and "Breathing out, 2, 3, 4".   Keep this up until you feel your body begin to relax.  Great job!!  Hope this simple practice and awareness can bring overall well-being to your life.
