Mindful Moments are little exercises we can do to incorporate mindfulness into our daily lives. I will occasionally share these little nuggets on the podcast. If you are looking for information regarding a specific practice such as breath work, Reiki, or 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.
As you begin your relaxation process, it’s essential to make sure you are physically comfortable. Take a moment to find a comfortable position and slowly close your eyes. Focus on your breathing, taking deep, steady breaths in and out. Allow yourself to fully relax and let go with each exhale. When you feel completely at ease, take one last deep breath before returning to your natural breathing pattern.
Take a moment to reflect on the moment you woke up this morning. Visualize your day passing through your mind’s eye like a movie without judgment. Simply observe. After you have finished reviewing your day, take a deep breath and release any tension you have been holding on to. Exhale and let go.
Now that you have released your day, it’s time to settle into restorative sleep.
