Pause.

Take a deep inhale in through your nose. Feel your breath fill your body.
Exhale slowly and completely through your nose.

Inhale deeply.
As you exhale, soften the muscles along your forehead.

Inhale deeply.
As you exhale, relax your jaw.

Inhale deeply.
As you exhale, soften through your chest and belly.

Inhale deeply.
As you exhale, relax your hands and feet.

Feel your hands from the inside out. Notice sensations of tingling, warmth/coolness, or the absence of sensation.
Feel your feet connected to the ground.

For a few breaths, listen: to sounds around you, feelings that arise, thoughts that pass by, and possibly for an intention for the next moment of your day.

Take a deep inhale in, drawing in what you need. Exhale completely, letting go of what you don’t.

Namaste,
Katie
