When you can tune in to how you are feeling, you can better understand your needs and thus, mindfully and compassionately care for yourself. Learn to simply breathe and sit with this simple meditation. Allow yourself to embrace the present moment, because now is the time to relax into breath. Now is the time to be fully present. You have the right to be here and give this to yourself. If not now, then when? Props Suggested: A blanket or a bolster to sit on.
