A Free 10 Minute Guided Body Scan Mindfulness Meditation, by Ray Good
The body scan meditation is one of the foundational practices of mindfulness. We spend most of our time in our head, constantly thinking, the body scan gets us out of our heads and into our body and the present moment, we move from doing mode to being mode.
Using the body as an emotional gauge, we become more aware of how the body reacts to different situations: if we become stressed or upset we can notice it more quickly in the body and make a choice how to respond.
It also helps release stored-up emotions and tension in the body.
I would love to hear how you go, so please leave a comment.
