Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're just going

to do a short practice that you can

use to reground before proceeding

into other moments of your day.

So I'm not sure what time

you're listening to this.

It may be the morning, the

afternoon or the evening.

But let's just take a

moment to stop and be still.

And see if you can feel that the

momentum of the day washing through you.

You know, the momentum of the day, right?

That feeling of previous moments sort

of pushing us into the next moment.

It's one of the things that can

keep us very future oriented and

on this, what can feel like a

treadmill, just going, going, going.

So just notice if there's a

sense of that for you right now.

You don't need to stop it or clear it,

but just see if you could create space

for that to wash through you rather

than pushing you into the next moment.

And as you start to feel into

this, you're welcome to close

your eyes or keep them open.

Just see if you can feel a sense of

your inner ground, that part of you

that is steady and centered, amidst

the chaos and momentum of your life.

Recognizing that in this moment,

there's nowhere else you need to

be, no problems you need to solve.

And no better version of yourself.

You need to become.

And just let your attention

rest here in the present moment.

Noticing sounds.

Maybe feeling a sense of your

body on the surface beneath you.

And if your eyes are closed,

you can let them open again.

So this simple practice is something you

can do many times throughout the day.

I tend to like to stop and feel that

momentum that's moving through me,

and that's the primary practice here.

Just taking a moment to be still

and noticing how much we can

be caught in the flow of our

life without even realizing it.

And there's something powerful to not

having to stop that or change that, but

just let it wash through you, almost like

an energy moving through you or a gust

of wind moving through a clear screen.

When we give it the space to move through

us, we can actually start to drop beneath

it, find a deeper rest and reconnect

to a sense of presence in this moment.

So try this out throughout the

day and maybe throughout the week.

Thank you for your practice.

And we'll settle into some more

practice for today's meditation.
