• I break contact with what I am focusing on, the computer screen, my agenda,
    or the thing I am worrying about.

  • I bring my focus to my body.  

  • I take a slow deep breath in and let it out just as slowly.

  • I stand and raise my arms over my head giving my body a gentle stretch and
    notice what that feels like.

  • I scan my body noticing what each part feels like. Not trying to change
    anything, just noticing.

  • I notice my surroundings and see myself in relation to them.  

  • I drink some water to replenish my body.

  • I am now refreshed and self aware, ready to proceed with my task..
