Tuning into your body!!

Our body is the most amazing vehicle we have to tune into the present moment.   Our body is with us at all times,  yet many of us do not spend any time in relationship with our bodies.

How does our body speak to us?  We feel sensations of hunger, thirst, tiredness, etc. We feel emotions of anger, sadness, frustration and joy.  We have voices that speak to us telling us what we should and should not do and we have our inner voice that tries to be heard.

When was the last time that you took time to tune into your body?  Do you know how to do this? In the next few posts I will give you some easy ways to start to tune into your body, moment by moment.

For today:

Take a deep intentional breath into the middle of your chest.

Notice any sensations in your hands and feet.

Notice the feeling in your face.

Is there any tension in your jaw, are your teeth clenched?

Relax your neck and shoulders – notice how they feel.

Notice your back and abdomen – what are the sensations there?

Take a moment to relax any areas in your body that you feel tension.

Take another deep intentional breath into the middle of your chest.

How do you feel after doing this?

Take a few minutes every day to tune into your body.  Schedule it for when you get up, at lunch, before you leave work and before you go to bed.  When you develop the habit of tuning in, you start to develop a better relationship with your body and you will learn to know what it needs.

Let me know if this works for you.  Blog with you later.
