Mindful Monday- Quick Body Scan Meditation
This mindfulness practice is a shorter version of the full body scan meditation. It is easy to practice any time and in any setting. We are practicing cultivating a neutral, compassionate, and open awareness towards the sensations in our bodies; one body part at a time. The practice is about noticing the sensations through a curious observation as opposed to judging the sensations as "good" or "bad". Whenever you notice your mind wandering in this practice, let that be ok and gently bring your attention back onto the body part we are scanning. Look for things like temperature, moisture, tingling, tension, relaxation, points of contact, and movements. As always, it is my hope that you find this practice of value and are able to connect more deeply with yourself.
