What can you do to buoy your spirits in a short amount of time? Here are 5 simple acts for you to do now, in this moment, with presence:
Take 5 deep breaths in and 5 deep breaths out
Tell yourself 7 times "I am happy" (in your mind and out loud)
Sit outside and let the sun warm your face
Stretch your body - flex your feet and wrists, twist your spine, look up down and all around
Don't you feel a little better than before? This is the practice of mindfulness.
