This short and simple meditation is a useful technique for helping to calm and focus the mind. It is a practice that can be done anywhere--while waiting in line at the grocery store, while taking the bus, or during a challenging meeting at work. When we move our attention to different parts of our body and bring a sense of relief and softness to those spaces, it cultivates our mind-body connection and helps to minimize stress. This practice also helps us slow down our response before reacting so that we can act more intentionally. Enjoy!
