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.
I guide you through this practice in the 2-Minute Mindful Meditation for Beginners video on my Stand Up for Your Self-Care YouTube Channel. Subscribe to my channel to stay updated on all of my latest self-care videos.
