Hello and welcome to episode 3 of grounded in stillness.
Today the focus is ‘busy bee’.
We all know the feeling, millions of things to get done. You wake up Monday thinking ‘yes I’ve got this’, then you blink and its Thursday and you think ‘not got this’.
Being busy is a part of life, sometimes we cannot help it. However we can be aware of it and learn about ourselves from it.
If you wish to read a little more about the blog behind this relaxation, head over to groundedinstillness.com.
So lets take a few minutes out from the busy to reflect on it, maybe even spin your thought processes on how crazy your day or week is going.
So find a comfortable position to relax in, be this sitting or laying, the choice is yours.
Gently close your eyes and become aware of your breath.
The gentle rise and fall of your chest, as you begin to take a few moments for yourself today.
Do you notice the gentleness of your in breath, and your out breath.
Who knew there was something so gentle and kind within your body, when it has felt so busy and taking a moment to be kind to yourself seemed impossible.
Taking a moment to pause, enjoy the stillness.
Breathe in deeply.
Then breathe out deeply.
To really feel the gentleness and calmness within you, this might be the one moment you need in your day, to refocus, rest and reconnect to the present.
So be aware of your breath, the kindness of it, the slowness of it.
Then notice how well you are doing, how well you are dealing with how busy your day is.
The small wins, being somewhere on time, getting through emails, not panicking.
These are all things you should be proud of achieving.
So enjoy a few breaths to take note of your small wins today.
Each and every one of them.
With each win you recall, use the out breath to let go of tension and smile about each small win today.
Allow your breath to focus you to the small wins in a busy world. Feel grounded, feel in control.
Be proud of yourself.
Enjoy a few more deep breathes, in and out and notice how you now feel.
Anytime in your busy day, bring yourself back to stillness with one deep breath in and one long breath out.
Slowly allow your breath to return to its natural rhythm, wiggle your fingers and your toes.
And thank you for listening.
