Body Scanning

Updated: Jan 27, 2021

When you are overwhelmed a body scan is very beneficial and one way to help bring yourself into the present movement. First, find a comfortable spot and close your eyes. Take note of your posture and where your hands and feet are. Then open and close your hands and toes slowly. Feel the flow of circulation going to each of them. Second, begin to roll your head slowly clockwise, feeling the weight of your head on your spine and neck fully and down onto your chest, repeat 3 times.  Then change direction and repeat 3 times. Lastly, imagine current flowing from you toes to your head, then as it comes back down separating off into your arms and then your legs. What do you notice?  If there is tension focus on releasing it by breathing slowly and thinking about the area. Now do these three things in reverse order ending up with noticing you posture. Did it change? Do you feel better? Now slowly open your eyes and breathe in and out 3 times slowly.
