Listen - 20 mins Body Scan

I absolutely loathed the body scan when I first did it.  I kept waiting for the miracle moment when the clouds would part and heavenly music would play and I would be enlightened.  Instead it just felt tedious body part followed by tedious bloody body part. 

How times have changed!  That attitude was a lot to do with me living my life just wanting to get to the next place, because surely it would be better/easier/funnier/brighter/more interesting than just this.  But the body scan has become my friend.  It reminds me that there's nowhere to go that isn't here and that tuning into my body is a great way to keep myself grounded to that.  Just here, just this, just now.

Remember it's not about changing or manipulating or demanding anything of ourselves.  Easy does it.
