We know that there is a strong connection between our posture and how we feel, but did you know that our posture can also influence our mood? try leaning back deliberately in this practice and see what happens.

Leaning Back and Letting Go
I was imagining myself in a beautiful forest. I was leaning back into a huge tree. I was so supported and grounded and peaceful. What a wonderful way to start my day. It is also good to know that I can return to that support throughout the day.

Accepting each sensation just as it it. Recognizing that each sensation is new and fresh. Letting go of things that do not serve us. This is being mindful and in the present.

Release fear, be confident
Fear consistently leads me to indecision and procrastination. Release fear, and give confidence a chance to better guide me. Namaste

Let go
Truly we just need to stop stressing over school or work and breath,stop and let go. So I encourage sitting back and calming down to breath

Leaning back and letting go
When I am tense, I do lean forward and tense my shoulders. It was a wonderful feeling to lean back into the world's embrace and just let go of things I can not change by worrying.

Softening
Another great 3 minutes! I need to lean back and let go more often! I actually felt my shoulders softening during this. At first, I didn’t feel as if I was letting go of the tension, until the practitioner reminded that each exhale was actually a letting go. The softening and releasing of tension in my body was amazing after that. I will definitely revisit this meditation. 🙏♥️💫

Quick Fix
Debb, thank you for your reflection. That is what caused me to try this one and I am glad I did. My mind plunked me down into Muir Woods once again and I found myself leaning back against my Giant Sequoia tree. Being there in the forest made it wonderfully easy to lean back and let go.

Noting
Noting in this way is a great idea as it stops any judgement re what is going on whilst meditating

Leaning back
Leaning back and letting go helps. It helps realize to not sweat the small stuff.
