It's Monster Meditation. With Cookie Monster. And me, Andy. (upbeat music) Aha! (timer ticking) (mouth trembles) Ugh! (Cookie Monster paces) Hello, Cookie Monster! Oh? Oh, it me friend, Andy. Hi, Andy! I see you're baking some cookies. Mm. Smells good! Yeah, but they not ready. Why cookies take so long to bake? Yeah, it can be hard to wait for something you really, really want. Hey, you want to play a fun Monster Meditation while we wait? Oh, what meditation? So it's an activity that can make waiting more fun. Oh boy. Follow along and do Monster Meditation with me and Andy. Great. So we're going to play I-Sense, a game of I-Spy, but with our five senses. Oh me know those! (sniffing) Sense of smell, (music plays) hearing, touch, taste and sight. Exactly. Now, can you spy something with your sense of smell? Me smell with me little nose, cookies! Oh boy. Oh boy. Oh boy. Ah! Wait, Cookie Monster. Ugh! The cookies still aren't ready. Let's pass the time by playing this game. But before we do, we're going to focus ourselves by doing some belly breaths. So, put your hands on your belly. Now take a slow deep breath in (Cookie Monster inhales) and slowly breathe out. (Cookie Monster exhales) Great job. Now that we focused, can you spy something with your sense of smell? Me smell with me little nose, strawberries! (laughs) Strawberries? Oh, yeah. It me Strawberry Monster shampoo. Me had bubble bath today. So with that smell in your nose, can you spy something with your sense of touch? Hey, me fur. (rubs fur) It's soft and fluffy. Now with that softness in your mind Cookie Monster, can you spy something with your eyes? (Cookie Monster blinks) Me spy with me little eye... You! Me friends at home. Hi! Wonderful. Now, while focusing on your friends, can you spy something with your sense of hearing? Me hear... me hear... (timer rings) loud ringing! Andy, can you answer your phone, please? Me trying to Monster Meditate. Cookie Monster? That's the timer. Your cookies are ready. Cookies! Oh, me almost forgot! (saxophone plays) (cookies fall) See, by focusing on your senses, you forgot all about waiting for your cookies to bake. And you still have one sense left. (Cookie Monster blinks) (scratches head) Me do? Yes. Your sense of taste. (Cookie Monster gasps) Cookie! (cookies crunch). Meditation fun and delicious. (Cookie Monster pats belly) (Cookie Monster sighs) (saxophone plays)...
