Practice It: Scan Your Senses in 2 Mindful Minutes

  • Begin in a comfortable seat and turn your attention to your breath.

  • Begin to notice the touch of your sit bones where you’re sitting. Notice where your hands are placed. What is your skin touching?

  • Notice the sounds around you. What to you hear?

  • Notice the smells around you. What do you smell?

  • Notice any tastes in your mouth. What do you taste?

  • Notice what colors you see with your eyes closed. What do you see?

  • After a few more mindful breaths, guide your attention back to your breath.
