Yeah, yeah, you’ve heard it all before, but honestly, this practice has withstood the test of time because it works. Sit your booty down in a chair or on a pillow and root down through your sits bones. Really imagine that you could grow roots into the center of the earth. So that no matter where you go, or what you do, you are grounded in who you really are. Then, shift your awareness to your breath. Inhale for three counts, exhale for three counts. This deliberate breathing shifts us from the sympathetic (fight or flight) to the parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system, so that we can think clearly, and listen to what's up. Then, my love, shift your awareness to your belly. How does it feel? Empty? Full? Growly? Gassy? Not what does it look like, (don’t worry about the last time you ate), but what does it feel like? Once you have your answer, act accordingly. If you’re physically hungry, grab a healthy something. If you’re emotionally hungry, take a bath, take a walk, or watch a flick. If you’re satiated, go on with your day and be your badass self! If getting down with this meditation on your own isn’t serving you, check out the Meditation Studio app by Gaiam (I have my own meditations launching soon!).
