One Small Step #10

This post is part of a series, each one is an exercise that addresses one part of your life and is designed to be brief and simple enough to become a habit.


The first post in the series is One Small Step #1.

Today the spiritual

For five breaths just notice that you are breathing. (You can notice the rise and fall of your chest, the filling and emptying of your belly, the feeling of air going in and out your nostrils.)

Take three breaths while you allow one of your values to come to awareness.

[Alternative remembering a spiritual model, hero or mentor. Connecting with your sense of the sacred/god.]

For the next three breaths allow this value to spread throughout your body.
Imagine for the next three breaths how it is to act with this value pervading you.
Notice how you are now feeling while you take your next three breaths.

Then come back to your awareness of your current situations for five final breaths.
