Monday Mindfulness Minute: Happy Feet

Step 1: Sit in a chair with both feet flat on the floor and your ankles underneath your knees and take a few natural breaths.

Step 2: Notice that you have two feet resting on the floor. Lift your toes up slightly and wiggle them for a few seconds. Relax your toes. Focus on one foot.

Step 3: Scan your awareness through the bottom of the foot for a few seconds while sensing the pressure, temperature, and vibration. Repeat the scan on your other foot.

Step 4: Stand up slowly and feel the sensations as your weight shifts. Sit back down. Continue to just be aware of your feet throughout the day – when walking, sitting, driving.

*Bonus points for giving sending your tootsies some tender gratitude for all they do for you.

Onward with whatever you were doing a minute ago. Observe if anything feels different.
