It's familiar, habitual, unaware

-- Did I just eat that whole bag of chips?

-- How is it 2 pm and I barely worked at all?

-- Compare my body, success, children etc... to others

It is present, awake, and open

-- Respond thoughtfully, rather than in the negative habitual way

(This is HUGE ✨)

-- Take a mindful breath before picking up my phone

-- Slow down to check in while eating

1 --> Journal

Start with 2 minutes a day (literally 2 min, keep it small on purpose)

2 --> Single deep breath

Every time you sit at your desk, before you pick up your phone....

3 --> STOP Practice

Stop what you're doing

Take a breath


Proceed with more awareness

4 --> Mind body practices

Try yoga or Tai Chi

5 --> Meditate

Try a body scan or RAIN meditation

Awareness is the pre-requisite to lasting change

It's also the KEY to self-discovery and growth

Don't skip it ✨
