Take a deep breath in through your nose... and exhale slowly though your mouth... Imagine yourself sitting on a beach. Close your eyes. Try to picture what would it feel... smell... and taste like. Picture sugar-white sands and emerald-hued waters...
Imagine touching the soft, white sand, feel the light breeze of the wind on your face and body... imagine the warm sensation of the sun rays... Take a slow breath in through your nose, gently breathing into your lower belly... Hold your breath for 2 seconds... and release... Imagine what would the air smell like. Hear the seagulls screech and squawk in the distance. Taste salty air on your lips. Be present.
Take a look at the waives... concentrate on your breathe and let it flow naturally. Try not to rush or force your breath. Just let it be. If you find yourself getting distracted, gently bring your attention back to your breath. Use all your senses -touch, smell, vision, hearing and taste - to fully experience this grounding experience. When finished, take a moment before you open your eyes. Capture this moment of calmness and peace. When ready, open your eyes... and smile. Feel free to come back to this place any time you would like!
