notice where your mind is right now…
if it’s scurrying here and there, like the White Rabbit,
try gently saying something like:
take a long inhale, filling up the belly
then a deep, relaxing exhale,
slowly emptying all the way out.
come back to the breath,
the dog at your feet,
the child in your arms,
the beating of your own heart,
the blue sky…
keep coming back.
