Close the Senses

Take a few minutes of your day for yourself. Anytime - morning, noon, or night.

Find a comfortable seat or lie down on your back.

Keep your shoulders relaxed and start breathing deeply.

Cover your eyes, ears, nose and mouth in the following way: Gently, place your thumbs in your ears to close off the sound, place your index fingers on your eyelids, your middle fingers on your nose, the next set of fingers above your lips, and your pinky fingers under your lips. Continue to breathe deeply enough that you hear your breath loudly inside your head. After about 10-15 deep breaths, find a normal, resting, quiet breath.

Next, listen to sounds from the outside. Tune into whatever you can hear, developing a deep awareness of the sounds around you. Remain here for 2-5 more minutes and release your hands.

Keep your eyes closed for a few more gentle breaths and then open your eyes feeling more relaxed, centered and attuned, inwardly and outwardly.
