The noticing self is something that I have found to be very important in my own life, and in the lives of my clients, and this practice helps us to cultivate it.
In this practice we gently get into our bodies while using our breath as an anchor. (This is especially beneficial for people with chronic pain).
The good thing is, that even people with chronic illness can develop resilience. Warning: it does require work on your part. Luckily, some of the work may not feel like work at all… it just requires consistent commitment to it.
