Wellbeing Activity 1: Look Around you
By reconnecting with these simple moments in life, by truly living moment by moment, it is possible to rediscover a sense of peace and enjoyment.
In this exercise, pick as a focus of awareness a new. aspect of life. you may really look at a particular leaf on a tree or a stone, or a plant. You may want to think about a piece of furniture or decoration you like in your house, wondering how it came into being and how many people were involved in its creation.
Wellbeing Activity 2: Awakening Your Breath
Stand with the spine lengthened upwards and the legs and feet hip-width apart. Position the arms by your sides, palms to the front, so the thumbs face outwards.
Inhale and sweep/lift your arms slowly up and overhead until the hands meet above the head, palms touching. Exhale slowly as you lower the arms back down to your sides, moving slowly with your breathing. See if you can deepen and lengthen your breathing, and try to feel the pause after each breath.
Repeat 10 to 15 times.
