Grounding is a return to the present. Throughout the day, our minds can race, dragging us back to the past, or forecasting the unknown future. We can settle our minds by connecting to our bodies and embracing the space which surrounds us.

The fastest way to settle your mind is to connect with your body. To do that, I am going to invite you to take a pause. Inhale and exhale. Again, inhale and exhale. On your next inhale place one palm on top of the other and exhale. Begin to notice your hands, without judgment. Your hands are not old, or messy, or fat or thin. They are just hands. Notice the soft parts of your fingertips, feel the strength of the bones within. Notice the temperature of your hands and the air which surrounds them. As your mind settles with each breath, begin to notice your arms up to your shoulders and down your back. Notice any tension. Stretch or breath to remove and settle that tension. Continue to breathe as you move your awareness down your back, through your legs, and settle at your feet. Feel the ground below you. Holding you, supporting you. Take a final deep, cleansing breath and return to your day.
