Water is the driving force of all nature! It has the power to wash off your pain, your anger, your stress. Whether in the form of tears, of rain or a bath, it always makes you feel better. So never underestimate its power. For me, water has always been my sort of cure for everything. Its where I regain my sanity. It's simply revitalizing! Who doesn't love the sound of pounding water, whether it is the waves or a waterfall. How powerful!
Today I will be sharing the 5 steps of mindfully showering with you, from my meditation journal. The power of meditating is all about keeping you focused and present. Starting or ending your day with a mindful bath helps you feel more grounded and allows you to connect with your body and mind in a deeper level. It transforms a routine, daily task into a refueling ritual.
As the water is heating up, take a few deep breaths.
Step into the shower or your bathtub and engage all of your senses.
Be present. Notice the sound of the water, the echoes.
Notice the temperature of the water on your skin and appreciate the warmth.
Breath in the scent of your favourite soap or shower gel
and appreciate the luxuries in your life.
Notice how the warm water washes over your skin,
nurturing your body as it grows and changes year after year.
Imagine it washing away any tension and stress.
If your mind wanders, congratulate yourself for noticing that your attention has moved and relax again into the calming sensations of a warm shower.
End your bath with appreciation for all your blessings,
and with gratitude for your amazing body.
