MBSR Day 1: Body Scan Meditation & Mindfulness

As part of my journey to unclench, I am undertaking the Palouse Mindfulness MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) program. This is a free resource that is available online that anybody can use to get started with mindfulness work and trying to reduce their body’s stress level. It is an eight week program that has readings, videos, and worksheets for daily active practice.

This first week introduces a 30 minute Body Scan meditation where I simply have to pay attention to different parts of my body for 30 minutes a day. Also, I am supposed to choose one daily activity where I try to cultivate mindfulness (like being in the shower or doing dishes) and record what it was like and how it felt.

Here we go.
