This is a practice I learned from Bridgette Christiansen. Come join me in five breaths, three things you are grateful for, and one intention for your day.

5-3-1 Practice
In this practice, you first take 5 deep breaths, think of 3 things you’re grateful for, and set 1 goal for the rest of the day. The great thing about this is that you really don’t need the meditation track - you can do this whenever you’re at an important point in your day by just remembering 5-3-1!
Day 1 again
I learned that I can use this practice to ground myself and teach others to do the same. By taking 5 deep breaths, thinking of 3 things I'm grateful for (1) my parents, 2) my bed, 3) my cozy home/ the heavy rain), and seeing my intention for the day (to have meaningful and intentional conversations).
I really felt the energy
Each breath was a feeling of letting go. Focus and intention were very useful
Energy Shift
Getting comfortable and settled in my chair, I focused on my next 5 breaths. Witnessing these breaths, I felt my body unwind and relax. Next I brought 3 things into my awareness that I am grateful for. Witnessing these images in my mind’s eye, I felt my heart swell into spaciousness. Finally I sensed an intention arise in my awareness that will help guide me through the rest of my day. After doing this simple, yet profound exercise, I feel an entire energy shift in my body, mind and spirit. Therefore, I will definitely be adding this tool to my well-being toolbox! Thank you! Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
Great short practice to begin the day with grounding yourself, finding gratitude, and setting your intention for the day. I like her suggestion of using this in the middle of the day if you need a reset. 3 things I am grateful for: Coffee, Quiet time for my morning meditation, and a quiet mind. When I set an intention for the day, I also choose a word for the day. The word Joy popped into my mind. My intention for the day will be to continue to grow this feeling of joy from within.
I found this practice and taking five deep breath‘s very soothing. After doing that I Books fun how grateful I was to be able to breathe. Are you I also that’s not how grateful I was for the picture on my wall, and to return to my messages this after several weeks of absence. Finally, I set the intention to end my day in mindful. I was having trouble focusing today. Hopefully this meditation will help me focus in future.
