This a wonderfully simple and effective exercise that really connects mind and body.
Remember to begin with at least 3 big, deep breaths and use this deep breathing as you visualise breathing out through those areas of tension and discomfort and melting them away.
Make a note of the areas of the deepest tension and discomfort and then once you have completed one full scan, go back and pay special attention to the areas of tension you need to focus on the most. Keep repeating this process until you have eased all the areas of tension and discomfort and feel relaxed and at ease.
You will find that through the deep breathing, the visualisations and the easing of tension you will strengthen your mind-body connection, awareness and communication and feel so much better for it.
I recommend doing this at least twice a day, once first thing in the morning before you go to work and once before you get home at the end of each day.
Have fun exploring with this exercise and as always let me know how you get on.
