This body scan trains awareness and opens the capacity for feeling more subtly. It trains the ability to hone in and feel more concentrated areas and then widen to allow your awareness to include a broader span. It can have the side effect of relieving pain and anxiety.

Body awareness
I learned that I'm self conscious of being too thin. My body just feels very skeleton like. My legs for sure used to be much more muscled. This goes back to around my turning 62. When I was working the Tanger outlet walking around five six hours in cold and my hips would kill me when I got home to the Bay Shore house. Never really found anything wrong though on web it seems might be thyroid related. Not much can do about right now so let go let God.

I loved feeling all the different sensations in my body. I have learned how these sensations can make me feel differently too

Guys, this is super unrelated to the mindfulness exercise but I just want to say that I found out today that my mom sold my SSN to some sleeze a few years ago just as I was getting out of college. I feel dead inside.

Know your body
Great exercise so you can learn about your own body and its feelings

I usually ignore my body's signals until I can't anymore, but it's sending signals and sensations all the time.

Stinging
I start this meditation and pretty much straight away I get stinging all over my back. I’m laying in bed and have to get my husband to scratch my back most of the way through and when the meditation finished my stinging back stops. Weird ... yes. Weird in the scheme of me .., not really.

Feeling
I didn't think I was feeling anything in particular, but when concentrating on each part, there were definite sensations.

Focus brings me into the present
By focusing on different parts of my body, I can be present with them.

It’s amazing to realize just how sensitive our bodies are. A lot of these sensations are ignored in everyday life. Moving from limb to limb and later to the whole body, I could feel the blood flowing down to my legs and back up to my chest. It felt like a wave. Similar to the tides of an ocean.

I learnt that my body relaxes when it’s paid attention too. Realising how your physical body feels and attending to that thought is very calming. 🌞

El cuerpo
Hoy curiosamente, al ver y escuchar a una persona dejarse llevar por sus emociones y sensaciones, por primera vez, me sentí en completa armonía con las sensaciones de mi cuerpo y lo que estaba tratando de asimilar mi mente. Dejé de lado los prejuicios, cómo desde hace una buena cantidad de tiempo lo he estado haciendo, sólo que en esta ocasión no me fue tan difícil lograrlo.

Awareness
I had trouble picturing myself as a whole and focusing throughout my body, but the focus down to specific body parts was interesting.

I was distracted the whole time. Couldn’t concentrate. My mind was all over the place.
Don’t think I learned anything, though, but it’s probably cause it was my first meditation and I was distracted.

I noticed that...
I am always thinking and my body twitches. It’s difficult for me to be in the moment.

Roadmap
When I am attuned to the seasons and tides of my body and of the shifting circumstances, which surround it, I can best predict how I will react and bridle my response. Through such means I can work to enhance my overall wellbeing via encouraging a positive response to certain situations and stimuli, which would have otherwise been perceived as negative and meaningless.

I often try to do body scans on my own but listening to this one was much more helpful! Really loved this meditation and great to do before bed!

It was nice to bring awareness of my external self to my internal self and make a connection with my mind and body.

Startling
I was very relaxed and present, but the silent pauses and sudden speech, startled me.
