Giveaway: Mindfulness

 

Anxious, stressed, overwhelmed?

Here’s a tool that can make a difference

right here, right now.

Exercise: S.T.O.P.

S:

Stop what you’re doing.

T:

Take a breath; a long, slow, full breath.

O:

Observe your surroundings. Take in as much detail as you can. Really take your time with it.

P:

Proceed with whatever you were doing.

Many of us walk around as if we have a smoke detector going off on the inside that says “Danger!” There are good reasons for this. When we stop to notice our surroundings, there’s a physiological change that happens.  Our relaxation response kicks in. This is good medicine. It’s free and it’s available anytime, anywhere, to anybody.
