Better mental health starts with Headspace

Tuning into our bodies is a great way to overcome anxious thoughts and feelings. Let's tap into the present moment, becoming mindful of our breaths. Take a breath in and out. Again, in and out. Last time. In and out. When we practice mindfulness, or tuning in, it helps us gain control of anxious thoughts. When we focus on the present, our thoughts don't wander into worries of the future or hurts from the past. Something else to consider, being mindful leads us to become more engaged with life and the little big things we tend to overlook. You know, the things we think are little, but are actually pretty important, like our amazing friends and family, or the beauty of living a new day. Body scans are a great mindfulness practice to help us feel what's going on in our bodies. It's simply sitting or lying down and paying close attention to different bodily sensations, while also observing your thoughts and sensations without judgment. Let's give it a try. Close your eyes. Relax your body into a comfortable position. Sitting or lying down is best. Take a deep breath. Tune into the weight of your body, where it's making contact with the ground, the bed, the chair, anything. (no audio) Do you feel anything? Any sensations? Your body has a lot going on inside of it. There could be warmth, tingling, buzzing, maybe just an itch somewhere. We'll move awareness down the body. Starting from top of your head. Notice your head, your face. Make your way down to your neck, your shoulders, chest, back, (no audio) and down your stomach. (no audio) Now your legs, all the way to your toes. (no audio) Bring awareness to every part of your body. (no audio) Remember, body scans are a great go-to when we feel anxious. Before you go, repeat after me. I take time to be present with myself. I am aware of my body. One more time. I take time to be present with myself. I am aware of my body. You got this....
