So has your day been rushing by at a break-neck pace? From meeting to meeting, from task to task? Mine has. I invite you to stop for a second and take a breath. Bring your eyes here. Right here. To these letters: h-e-r-e. Ah, there you are. Here I am. Now breathe a fresh breath into the space between the letters. Feel any tightness in your shoulders and your chest dissolve as you exhale.
Welcome to this clear spot in your day. Rest here a moment and let your awareness touch the soles of your feet, the backs of your hands, the top of your head. And when you’re ready, gently turn your attention back to what you were doing. Feels different, slower, easier, doesn’t it?
