Close Your Eyes
I challenge you to close your eyes for 1 minute. Set a timer and close your eyes.
Within a minute you are likely to take a deeper breath. Within a minute you are likely to loosen tension somewhere in your body. Closing your eyes reduces sensory input (which stimulates the nervous system) so for one minute your nervous system can relax. You can’t multi-task with eyes closed, which can actually feel freeing.
Give yourself permission for a one minute pause.
