Sometimes our bodies and minds are in two different places. And to help them come together, we can gently press pause to just breathe and be present. Let's do that now. Go ahead and get comfortable. Feel your spine grow long, your feet planted on the floor. Leave your eyes open, letting your gaze soften. Imagine there's a small gold stopwatch in your palm and when you press the side of it, time stops. Go ahead and press it. You did it. You've paused time. Now, we're in the present. While you're here, do a scan of your body, noting any areas of stress or tension without judgment. Breathing deeply into those areas and exhaling out through your nose. Feel your feet grounded on the floor, taking the time to observe the texture of this floor and how your feet feel in this space. Now, listen to the room. Notice all the tiny sounds that stir, sounds that normally might go missed. What do you hear? Let's turn your focus to your deepest self, to your spiritual center. Again, without judgment, discover what feelings are there. Is it peaceful, unsettled, plentiful, empty, bright, or something else? Note these impressions, but don't act on them now, save them for later. When you're ready, you can press the stopwatch again. Knowing that the next time you want to be in the present, all you have to do is invite your senses to tune in.
