Instructions for "Sole Sensation":
--Along with setting a reminder to do this practice several times a day, do it if you notice you're feeling anxious or upset.
You have just practiced giving your mind a break from the busyness of constantly thinking and analysing, and allowing it a chance to settle down a bit. The feet are as far away from the head as you can get on your body, and when you direct your focus to the feet, you are rebalancing the body, and stepping away from any anxiety that may be brewing in your mind.
"Placing your awareness in the bottoms of your feet will lead to mental stability and emotional serenity, if you practice it diligently." - Jan Chozen Bays, M.D.
