Rate your pain on a scale of 1 to 10.
How ridiculous is that? Everyone instantly begins surveying their body for anything and everything that hurts. The focus is only on the pain.
If asked to rate your comfort, what happens? The body check focuses instead upon which joints are moving well, the relaxed muscles, the balance between each side.
From stepping on Lego to having a butterfly land on your finger, your self assessment is deeply affected by your mindset.
If you go in looking for pain, you will find it.
So try feeling the butterflies, the puppy bites, the whiskers of kittens, the melting of chocolate, light rain on bare skin, warm sun rays breaking through the clouds…
Focus on all the gentleness your body can feel.
Find some pleasure today.
