Find a quiet spot. Take a few deep breaths. Ask yourself these questions below- jot them down in a journal or just reflect on the answers that arise.
How are you feeling? (no filter, no judgment)
Where do you feel this in your body? ( what specific areas of the body are these emotions arising?)
What does it feel like? Be specific. ( Be detailed. Label and identify)

What are 3 things/people/places you adore in your life?
What are 3 things you can put in your “wellness tool kit, care kit” ?
What helps you return HOME in your body? Be specific- baths, hugs, yoga, meditation, oils, Pema books, etc) The clearer you are here- the better! This is a TOTALLY unique list for you to return to when you need to ground and center yourself.
Lay down on your back, flat. Spread your arms and legs so they have space so you feel the breathe fully in all areas of your body. Breathe from souls of feet to top of head. Watch this for guidance.

Go out in the world and DO THAT THING.
I also find this type of breathing, deeply healing and this type of meditation also helps me to cultivate compassion for my self and for others.
