Welcome to another mindfulness moment on the Zen(ish) Mommy Podcast! Today’s tip is an extremely intuitive technique that will help you get into your body and get centered. Join me as I guide you through a simple but powerful breathing technique that will help you observe your thoughts, learn about yourself, and find stillness in the rush of everyday life this holiday season.
This simple breath technique helps you drop into the body. This is not about stopping the thoughts but recognizing where they go.
“It is not about stopping the thoughts. There are about 80,000 thoughts that come into our minds every day. It’s impossible to stop them. It’s about recognizing where the mind goes when it wonders, and what our mind’s tendencies are.” — Jessica Gershman
Find a comfortable place to find stillness. Draw your attention to the breath as it naturally slows and elongates.
“We cannot breathe for ourselves in the past and we cannot breathe for ourselves in the future, so it is the breath that really allows us to be in the present moment.” —Jessica Gershman
