3-Minute Breathing Space
This meditation is intended to be used when thoughts or mood spiral in a negative direction. Deliberately using the breathing space whenever we notice unpleasant feelings, or a sense of tightness or holding in the body, provides an opportunity to begin to respond rather than react.
Firstly, we become aware of our thoughts, feelings and emotions with a sense of kindness and self-compassion whatever we find, we then focus our attention on our breathing, and lastly, expand our awareness back out to a sense of the body and experience as a whole.
It can be used as much as you like, at work, at home, or any time you might need to restore some degree of calm and self-compassion in your day.
Please do not watch or listen to this material whilst driving or operating machinery or where it is not safe for you to close your eyes and fully relax.
