Mindfulness Activities – Finding your Calm – 15.5.2020

Hello St Georges,

Please find below two more mindful activities which focus on finding your calm.

First Squeeze – Let go of anger

  • Stand, sit or lie down and relax your arms by your sides.  Take three soft, slow mindful breaths.  Pay attention to what you are thinking and feeling.
  • Imagine those thoughts and feelings gathering like red-hot energy in your hands.  Breathe in and squeeze your fists as tightly as you can.
  • Breathe out and open your hands, soft and loose.  Imagine the red hot energy flying away like sparks.
  • Breathe in and squeeze your fists again.  Let the energy build.
  • Breathe out, open your hands and let the energy go.
  • Repeat until you feel calmer.  After you’re done, swing your arms gently side to side to loosen up.

Joyful Jellyfish – Ley your fears float away.

  • Lie down on a mat or blanket.  Let your arms rest loosely by your sides.
  • Close your eyes and notice your tummy rising and falling with your breathing.
  • Feel your muscles sinking into the floor beneath you.  Let your body be as still as possible.
  • Imagine you are a joyful jellyfish, floating in the water.
  • Now let your worries glide off your jelly body.  Feel them slip away in the water.
  • Float freely through the sea – nothing in your way, nothing holding you back.
  • When you are done rise slowly taking your joyful jellyfish heart with you.

Enjoy.  Stay safe and well. xxx
