This simple premise offers a potential method of soothing an over occupied mind.
Making time for yourself and getting the hang of bringing the attention inward is a simple balancing action that can bring calm and ease to your system. Leave the external as it is and come inside. As challenging as this can be, the rewards are many. As you balance your attention you will have access to inner resources that may provide solutions to the puzzles of your life.
How to get started.
Set an alarm on your phone or computer for three times during the day that you can take just three minutes to yourself. I suggest morning, afternoon and evening times (keep it simple!). At each of these times, go to a place by yourself and set a timer for three minutes.
What to do with your three minutes:
Get as comfortable as possible and try to feel your toes, your feet, and ankles. Then feel the air moving in and out of your nose, throat and lungs. To finish raise your arms gently overhead and take another two or three breaths.
After practicing this for ten days in a row, you will see how just nine minutes a day of inward attention can make a difference in your life.
