Mindful Moments

Mindful Moments are little exercises we can do to incorporate mindfulness into our daily lives. I will share these little nuggets from time to time and eventually they will get their own page. If you are looking for information regarding a specific practice such as breath work, Reiki, meditation; please contact me and I will be happy to assist!


Do you take time to reflect back on your day without judgment?
Right before I go to sleep, I allow my day to play back in my mind. I remain an unattached witness. This allows a deeper view into the nature of my actions and thoughts. Over time, patterns emerge and give way to thoughtful change. I am ever grateful for the lessons the Universe provides daily.
One step, one breath at a time.

Try this exercise before you go to sleep tonight.

Once settled, be sure to get comfortable, close your eyes and focus on your breath. Gently follow your breath in and out until you feel yourself melt into your bed. Then take a deep breath and return to your natural breathing.

Now think back to when you woke up. Allow your day to pass through your minds eye as if you are watching a movie. Only witness, no judgement. Once you have finished “viewing” your day, take another deep breath and as you exhale release any tension you have been holding on to. Exhale and let go.

Now that you have released the day, you are prepared for well rested, peaceful sleep.

Sweet Dreams.
