A short mindfulness exercise for a good start into the weekend:
Sit in an upright position.
Be aware of your belly for 30 seconds. Be mindful. Observe how your belly moves when you inhale and exhale.
Focus on your chest for 30 seconds. Observe how your ribs expand when you inhale and how they move back together while exhaling. Breathe mindfully and observe.
Now be aware your nose. For 30 seconds, observe how your nasal wings move with the breath and how the air is touching your nostrils.
Now focus for 30 seconds on the quality of your breath. Is your breath deep or shallow? Fast or slow? Rhythmic or not? Observe the quality of your breath without judging it.
Finish the exercise now and take the awareness of your breath into your daily life.
