Here’s a little guided meditation you can do lying down or sitting up. Once you get good at it, you won’t need the recording and no one will even know you’re doing it. Handy for stressful situations where you have to stay physically present but you feel like you need a little bit of mental space.
How does it work? When you follow along with the rotation of awareness around some key structures of your face and torso, you will be activating your vagus nerve which helps create a sense of safety, ease and inner resource within your nervous system. Doing this a couple of times a day can create subtle but profoundly restful shifts within your body mind. Keep practicing because the benefits accumulate.
