If you’re new to mindfulness, this simple exercise helps you focus on your senses, rather than the noise in your mind.

  1. Name five things you can see
  2. Name five things you can hear
  3. Name five things you can feel touching your body
    (like the floor pressing on soles of your feet, or watch strap on your wrist)
  4. Then, name four things you can see, four that you can hear, and four that you can feel touching your body
  5. Then three
  6. Then two
  7. Then one.

You can use it at times when you’re caught up in your worried thoughts - like sitting in a waiting room, or at night when you’re trying to wind down.

Nice one. It helps to take things one step at a time. So, get into this and check back afterwards for more.
