Centering Techniques #centeringtechniques

• Deep breathing
• Stretching – My favorite is the Forward Fold
• Focused Attention – Putting together a puzzle, coloring books, or whatever your hobby may be.
• Releasing resistance
• Releasing muscle tension – imagine this visually as you stretch your body
• Live in the now, in the present moment
• Develop your awareness – So you know when your out of center and can take steps to get back to center
• Tadasana – Mountain Pose – Stand up straight but not rigid with your arms to your side. Plant your feet firmly on the ground and stand tall, imagine the top of your head touching heaven and your feet being firmly rooted in the Earth.
• Place your feet on the ground. Move your awareness to the bottom of your feet. Notice all of the sensations there.
• Get on the floor and stretch your whole body out, let out a huge sigh and let all of the tension out in your exhale
• Spinal Twists – You are a sponge, wring out the stress!
