Another breathing practice. This time lets bring our focus to a more precise sensation. This kind of practice train your concentration the ability to keep your attention where you decide to. Keep on practicing one moment at a time.
Our body reacts to what happens in our mind just like it would to a real situation. That can be a problem when our mind is revisiting difficult moments of our past or imagining bad outcomes for our future. This can result in anxiety and other so called negative emotions. We can also use this to our benefit. By focusing on the pleasant sensation associated to good memories we train and reinforce new positive neural pathways in our brain. We are literally changing ourselves to become happier…
There is no limit to the space our consciousness can fill. This kind of practice let us explore mindfulness in a broader perspective. I find that being aware of space around me gives me space inside. A kind of peaceful space that is neither here nor there but everywhere. Keep on practicing one moment at a time.

It is always possible to find some kind of pleasant feeling within our body. It can be the relaxing feeling of an out breathe or the feeling associated with the relaxation of muscles. By focusing on the pleasantness of it we can amplify it and it become even easier to focus on it. This creates a positive feedback loop that we can use in our mindfulness practice. Keep on practicing one moment at a time.

Nature is everywhere around us. Wherever we are there is always a manifestation of nature close wether it is a tree or another plant. Being aware of nature surrounding us helps us feel connected and part of the mysterious thing that is life. Keep on practicing one moment at a time.

Coming back to physical sensations can be very grounding. For those of us who sit the whole day in front of a screen this is a convenient way to practice mindfulness. It can also help to move the energy down and calm a agitated mind. Keep on practicing one moment at a time.
