How are You?

Hmmm…How am I?

“Good thanks”

“Fine”  

“Okay”

Automatic responses fly out of your mouth multiple times a day. But what if you paused and thought about it…

How am I? How do I know how I am? What do I look for? Where do I start? Do I really want to know? Because really isn’t being “Fine” just easier?

Maybe its too scary to pause because I might just find out.

Do you have 10 minutes?

Start with a scan…sitting quietly, just notice – breathing, facial tension, muscle tension. Working your way from the top of your head to your toes, notice the effects of gravity, your body connecting to the chair perhaps, or your feet on the floor. Spend time to just notice and connect with yourself. See what transpires. Become acquainted with how you are in this particular moment in time. It might prove to become a journey worth taking.

You are worth it!
