Hello again! 💜

I enjoy spending time with you each day and discovering things together that can make our lives better and better. 😀

Today I would like to continue the conversation from yesterday about being fully present in the moment.

So often we can forget to slow down and really enjoy this life that we're living.

 How did it go yesterday with putting all of your attention behind your eyes?

I learned that tool from my mentor Jeffrey Allen, and I've had fun playing with it lately.

Another way that I use it is during exercise.

If you like to do yoga, weightlifting, ab workouts, barre classes, pilates, etc., you can try moving your attention into whatever muscle you are working to get the most out of each movement and to really be present with your body.

You can also put your attention on your breathing if you want to try something different.

Lately I have been reading books by Thich Nhat Hanh and Martha Beck, and I combined their mindfulness mantras to create one that feels good to me (feel free to switch out any of the words to make this mantra work for you).

I take slow, deep breaths in and out as I silently say this over and over:

"Breathing in, I allow everything in my life to be exactly as it is in this moment. Breathing out, I release my resistance to life and receive the gifts in this moment."

Try this a few times right now if you would like.

"Breathing in, I allow everything in my life to be exactly as it is in this moment. Breathing out, I release my resistance to life and receive the gifts in this moment."

Let any stress or tension that you're carrying melt down and right out of your body.

"Breathing in, I allow everything in my life to be exactly as it is in this moment. Breathing out, I release my resistance to life and receive the gifts in this moment."

One more time: "Breathing in, I allow everything in my life to be exactly as it is in this moment. Breathing out, I release my resistance to life and receive the gifts in this moment."

Pause for a second and check in with yourself.

How do you feel?

Whenever you feel stressed or overwhelmed by your thoughts, you can try this mindful breathing for a few minutes until you feel your body relax.

It's amazing how quickly you can go from really tense and really obsessive about your stressful thoughts to relaxed, calm, and peaceful.

It's always worth the extra few minutes to relax and let life be easier. ❤️

Much love to you,

Amber
