Hi everyone, I’d like to invite you all to “find your feet”. Try this as you read this message maybe as it’s a nice, short informal practice.
Simply bring attention to your feet and notice the contact they are making with the floor (helps us feel grounded). Explore any physical sensations in your feet, the temperature of them, the contact they are making with socks or shoes. Take as long or as short as you like just “feeling” into your feet 😊
Every time you feel stressed or anxious you could see this as an opportunity to practice mindfulness. Notice what’s happening in your body – accepting and simply being *curious* about and *interested* in the physical sensations.
Focus on what you can feel and also *notice the thoughts* attached to the emotion. Labelling the thoughts may help you to not get dragged into them (which can often create more physical sensations which create more thoughts!).
Mindfulness really helps us to stop “fuelling the fire” of thoughts – bodily responses – thoughts when we feel stressed or worried.
