Mindful Moment: Stretch!
Did you do it? Go ahead, we'll wait...
While you're at it, why not turn your head to the left and to the right, then tip your chin down and roll over to one should and then the other... or just check in with how you're feeling and do any stretch or movement that feels good right now.
It's amazing how wonderful it can feel to move your body, especially if you've been sitting for a while. Enjoy this sensation of stretch and looseness in the body.
Do you find moments to move your body during the day? What are your ways for remembering to do this? Comment and let us know!
"Mindful Moments" is a series that Marianne and Katie developed as "micro-practices" with the intention of offering inspirations to pause, notice, connect, and reflect in the course of daily life. These are suggestions of ways to fold more moments of mindfulness into your day to cultivate "Being Aware & Being Kind."
If you'd like to have these in physical form, we've also made these photos into a desk set-- a deck of 31 cards, in a little bag along with an easel. You can take a look here.
