A simple practice for instant calm
This is a lovely simple practice to do any time you feel agitated as it will quickly bring you back to a place of calm.
Here's how to do it:
1. Place your right hand on your heart and your left hand on your belly. Your right hand connects you back to your own sense of Self and your left hand connects you to your baby.
2, Close your eyes and focus on the warm sensation of the hands on your body. Bring your awareness to your breath and notice your inhales pushing the hands away and your exhales bringing the hands back in and softening the body.
Stay here for as long as you need to, usually even just a few minutes is enough to come back to a more peaceful place.
Give it a try next time you are feeling agitated or overwhelmed and let me know how you get on!
