We all need comforting
Spending time being comfortable --being in comfort, in our comfort zone-- is a necessary part of moving forward in life. (So is time spent being challenged, but that's a topic for another time.) And there are many ways to return to comfort when you need to -- doing things you love, spending time with people who make you feel good, and adopting practices that help your nervous system move towards your "happy place," such as meditation and yoga 😉 More on that in the episode!
You can also ignore all that and just practice in the way that suits you best! Enjoy!
Listen to "Ep 514 - Comforting Self + Humming Mantras Meditation" on Spreaker.
What’s in this episode of Everyday Meditation?
- Welcome + getting situated, with a few thoughts on comforting self/Self
- A little lead-in movement: Seated side stretch
- Breathing practice: Long exhale
- Meditation technique (awareness kriya): Humming Mantra
- A little re-grounding movement: Kneeling lunge
As always, I encourage you to make yourself at home in this practice: substitute, modify, do as you need to feel safe and present, including taking breaks!
After listening to the episode, perhaps check in: did you notice something that you want to carry with you? If yes, maybe jot it down in a notebook or record a voice memo to help you remember!
Be moving, be true, be you
