Awareness Grief Activity
I SEE YOU, GRIEF!
Here is a free 3 page booklet just for you.
You only need to be guided by your feelings.
This creates awareness of our feelings and how grief represents itself to us individually.
When we are able to recognize what our grief looks like, we are able to navigate our lives with it.
5 minute breath work
Why is breath work important?
Because it >
Relieves stress and anxiety. When you engage in breath work, you change the nervous system's response from flight and fight to rest and digest and this is very healing.
Improves your mood. Following breathing patterns can provide a mood boost.
Helps your body fully working in flow and ease
Is grounding and allows us to come into our body rather than always staying in our mind
Allows a PAUSE in our day and SPACE for us to feel our emotions and process our emotions.
When we have gone through a traumatic situation or grieving a loss, our nervous system and adrenal glands are over worked. Breath work helps you tap into that parasympathetic system, and in time allowing your body to reduce stressors.
TRANSCRIPT of the AUDO
Take a seat with your feet firmly placed on the ground
Allow your hands to rest on your lap
Close your eyes or soften your gaze
Create a tall spine and gently move the crown of your head towards to sky
Take a deep breath in through your nose. Feel your body as you inhale.
Take a long breath out of your month. Notice your body as you exhale.
Follow your breath in and out of your nostrils.
Rest your mind on your belly or your chest or at your nostrils.
Just be aware as you breathe in and as you breathe out.
No need to change the pattern of your breath, just be aware of your breathing
After a few deep breaths, I invite you visualize roots from the soles of your feet traveling into the center of the earth
You are feeling grounded, rooted and safe
Now add the color brown to your roots - a deep dirt brown color.
Visualize your thick brown roots planted into the earth
Now come back to your breath
Connecting with your inhales and your exhales
Maybe focusing on how your belly moves with every breath you take
Stay here as long as you need
When you are ready OPEN your eyes slowly and just notice without judgement in where you are
