Mindfulness Exercises

Just Three Breaths: As many times a day as you are able, give the mind a short rest.  For the duration of three breaths ask the inner voices to be silent.  It’s like turning off the inner radio or TV for a few minutes.  Then open all your senses and just be aware—of color, sound, touch, and smell.                                                            

Reminding Yourself: Post notes in your environment with the number 3 on them. You could add a drawing of a person with an empty thought balloon abour her head.  It might help to set an alarm or cell to ring at irregular intervals throughout the day. How to Train a Wild Elephant, Jan Chozen Bays, MD, Shambhala, Boston, 2011 p. 68.
