Script: Sit comfortably. Take a few deep breaths in and out. Now, just take a few seconds to check in with your body. Start with your head and face. Then bring your attention to your neck and throat. Do you feel any tightness? If you feel like you want to move – feel free to do so. Now roll your shoulders back a few times, how do your shoulders feel? What about your arms, wrists and fingers. Wiggle your fingers. How do the muscles feel across your back and chest. Now notice your stomach. How does it feel? Lastly, move your attention to your legs and all the way down to your feet and the tips of your toes. What are the parts of your body that feel good? Bad? Is there any part of your body that feels calm? Tense? Do you feel any aches, pains or other sensations like happiness in your heart or butterfly feelings in your stomach? The sensations in your body help you understand how you are feeling. They are the first clue that you may be nervous, angry or scared. The more we listen to them, the more you will be able to make good decisions with each feeling that comes your way. Make a mark or color in the parts of your body on the body map outline that you notice the most. Use any color you wish to represent feelings of calm, tension, pain or good feelings like happy or excited. Great job – What stands out most to you as you look at your body map? What do you need most right now to feel more balanced and comfortable?
