Mindfulness Activity


Today's activity is again working on our focus.


Feet, seat and hands practice:

  1. First, stamp your feet for the time it takes to breathe in and out once.  Then pause and notice the sensation of your feet on the floor.
  2. Next, gently lean your upper body from side to side three times.  Then sit still.  Can you feel where you are sitting on the chair?
  3. Finally, rub your hands together for the count of 10.  Then stop and place your hands on your lap.  Focus on the feelings in your hands.  Notice how you moved your attention throughout your body!
