May You Be Mindful – May 31 

STOP. 
Stand up and breathe. Feel your connection to the earth. 
Tune in to your body. Lower your gaze. Scan your body and notice physical sensations or emotions. Discharge any unpleasant sensations, emotions or feelings on the out breath. Notice any pleasant ones and let them fill you up on the in breath. 
Observe. Lift your eyes and take in your surroundings. Observe something in your environment that is pleasant and be grateful for it and its beauty. 
Possibility. Ask yourself what is possible or what is new or what is a forward step. 

If you find yourself being reactive, try the following steps: 
Pause and take one to three big breaths. 
Say “step back.” (You don’t have to physically step back, you can just do it in your mind.) 
Say “clear head.” 
Say “calm body.” 
Breathe again. Say “relax,” “melt” or “ease.”
