How are you? I mean, really. Close your eyes for a moment, take a deep breath, and observe how you feel right now.
Scan your body slowly from top to bottom and notice all the things that are happening with every single part of you. Do you notice some things that have been bothering you for a while?
Perhaps some aches and pains, maybe some digestive discomfort, or reminders of an old injury?
Maybe you’ve got a mild headache and realize, wait a minute… I kind of always have a headache, or a tummy ache, and now that I think of it, I feel exhausted — all. the. time.
Is there anything you’re noticing that seems to have crept up on you, such as some new muscle tension, a racing mind, negative self-talk, or maybe a sense of “oh my gosh, when did my tummy start spilling over the top of my pants like this?!”
