Every day for 1 week I will be posting a short, very simple mindfulness activity to complete at any time of day.
For parents and dancers alike, let’s take a moment to breathe, relax and remind ourselves that we are everything we need to be, especially during these tough times.
Day 1 - Breathing Never underestimate the healing power of the breath.
Find a quiet space and sit comfortably with a straight spine. Relax your shoulders, jaw and neck.
Inhale through your nose for 5 seconds. Feel your stomach expanding and imagine your body being filled with healing energy. Hold your breath for 3 seconds and imagine that healing energy flowing all through your body. Exhale for 5 seconds whilst envisioning all the negative energy flowing out through your mouth and nose.
Repeat this process until you feel ready to continue with your day.
Keep going parents & dancers, you're all amazing and I miss your lovely smiling faces.
