Every Friday, I reflect on the week that has just passed by doing a little sensory exercise. This practice is a gentle, easy way to tune into how we are doing, what we are experiencing, and what we are grateful for while more acutely tuning into our senses. It’s a whole heart exercise with plenty of bodily input, if you will. Because this practice has been so good for me, I want to encourage you to do it, too. Building some gentle reflection into our weeks is a nice way to stay grounded while maintaining some big picture perspective. So please join me in this week’s Friday Reflections (with each sense as your inspiration, consider how experiencing it impacted your week).
seeing :: Happy’s jubilant face each afternoon when I pick him up from school. Absolutely my favorite part of the day. We have just under a mile walk home from school, I come with snacks, we stop all along the way, studying bugs and flowers, and it is just the best (when he’s not whining about not being able to watch TV on school nights).
feeling :: the fluffy down on Lola’s neck while giving her big, daily rubs. She just got a major cut, though, so the fluffy down is a little less full.
wishing :: for a happy weekend (and a Fantasy Football win), some exciting new work, another great session with my body image students this semester
What about you? What were your sensational experiences this week? Please share!
