Running through a body scan can provide you with a number of benefits. It’s a great way of switching off from the outside world, connecting with yourself and checking in, giving yourself time notice and hopefully relax. Here is one of my nourishing processes that I mentioned yesterday.
Start by finding a comfortable position, laying down or seated are both options here, just make sure you can drop into the position and maintain it for a while. As we’re focusing on the body, we want to eliminate as many external sensations as possible. A quiet location will help and bringing your eyes to a close will support your focus to move from what’s going on outside to what your body is feeling on the inside. This is all about you so perhaps give yourself permission to be here, to observe and notice.
As you’ll have your eyes closed, I’ve recorded the process for you to listen to.
