Sit down comfortably in the sand. Make sure you’re sitting in a way so that you’re able to take a couple of deep breaths. Cross legged is great as that opens your abdominal area, your psoas and pelvic area. The lungs and your ribcage has the freedom to move and expand to full capacity when you sit cross legged.
As you breath, feel the air/ and the wind against your skin, against your forehead, against your cheeks, your hair, and wherever your skin is exposed. Put your attention to each part of your face. Let go of any tension between your eyebrows and around your mouth. If you have a hard time letting go of tension, it might help you to put a hand or a finger on the area.
Let the air flow in and out of your lungs.
Feel your feet.
Feel the sand.
Put your feet in front of you in the sand.
Feel the temperature, wiggle your toes, the whole foot.
Feel the sand under your arch fully supported.
Feel each particle of the sand.
Let sand run in-between each toe.
Flex your feet and point the toes up to the sky.
Inhale, take a deep breath, and as you exhale all the air out of your lungs, push the sand away from you.
Inhale as you point your toes and start scooping sand back in towards your body. Try it 10-20 times.Then, reverse direction, and try it another 10-20 times.
Now your head should feel clearer and your senses more vibrant.
Make sure your shoulders drop down and away from your ears.
If you’re not used to used to use your feet much, or you always keep them in shoes, this might be a huge workout for your feet and calves. You might feel cramping and the like, but don’t be alarmed-
that just means your feet need the work. Stretch them out, massage them, and let them be free in the sand.
If you can’t make it to the beach, instead of sand; try dirt, grass or water- an element true to nature.
Sit under a tree!
To finish, lie down on your back.
Open up your chest,
to the sky.
Turn you palms up to the sky,
or put them behind your neck.
Walk back to your car barefoot!
Let your feet feel the ground.
Walk heal to toe.
Walk lightly, as if you were walking on clouds.
Let me know how you did!
Enjoy you day!
