Practicing the 5 senses is a great way to start savoring your life.
Savor the sights all around - inside or outside. Breathe in the fresh air if you're outside and see all the new that spring has to offer. Savor the sights.
Savor the smells all around - inside as you cook or clean and outside all the fresh wonder. Breathe in deeply using your nose to smell. Savor the smells.
Savor touch - your clothes, sudsy soap, sunshine and human touch. There is so much to take in from paying attention to touch. Savor this beautiful sense.
You can also savor life challenges.
not getting the desired outcome
What often keeps us from truly savoring is our need to have everything now. That need to do a lot in a certain amount of time. To be on speed or auto-pilot. Upon awakening we can find ourselves checking email and texts before we stretch, set an intention and brush our teeth.
Here are a few slow-downs to help you savor all that your life has to offer you.
drink more slowly
walk with ease and purpose
look in the mirror at you - really look at yourself
drive with the window down and breath in the fresh air; feel your hair dance with the wind
notice the birds, clouds, sun, rain, tree, grass - all the glorious nature around you
notice your coworkers or roommates in a different way - find something unique and fun about them
Take a moment to stop and savor.
