Mindful movement (9 min) practice
During this week we will practice mindful movement. This exercise can be done at any time, but remember that mornings are preferred (so you don’t skip your practice).
Try to see if you can put it into practice this exercise whenever you are going on foot from one place to another. This has two advantages:
- Increasing your mindfulness practice in an organic way will strengthen your mindfulness muscle.
- It will create mindful breaks that will help you keep your stress levels under control.
Additionally, a second practice is offered this week: “Progressive muscle relaxation (PMR)”. This exercise is particular helpful to reduce stress levels and it can be very useful for people suffering insomnia, so feel free to do it before going to bed.
Ps: You can do the “soles of the feet” practice the whole week or you can alternate it with the “PMR practice” or the 15 minutes mindful breathing exercise.
Practice for 6 days and rest one, or from Monday to Friday and rest the weekend. Resting does not mean not to practice mindfulness but to use those days to explore other ways to be mindful in a more creative way.
