Today I did not look at the daily death rate
Today I decided to meditate
Today my body told me that I need to do the body scan
You are far too overworked, mum
You really need to lie down
Similar to your baby in the pram
But on the floor like you always used to
This poem came to me the other day when I decided to do the Body Scan meditation, which I have not done for a while now. I felt exhausted physically and mentally and while my boy was sleepin, I felt this is it, I have to do the Body Scan. If you feel like this you should do it too. Here is a guided Body Scan by John Kabat -Zinn , the father of Mindfulness.
