Have you ever considered how many times you touch your hair and head? Many people, when particularly nervous will run their hands through their hair or over their head, twist locks of hair or rub our scalps. The same goes for when we are happy, excited, sad and more. Today, we will actually pay attention to these movements.
⁃ Seat yourself in a comfortable position.
⁃ Take two deep, Mindful breaths.
⁃ Then, turn your attention to your head. Begin by either running your fingers through your hair or over your scalp.
⁃ Pay attention to how it feels against your hands.
⁃ How does it feel?
⁃ How does it make you feel?
⁃ Take the time to massage your scalp with your fingertips and enjoy the feelings.
⁃ Then, one small bit at a time, concentrate on the tingling of the skin, warmth and feel of the front, middle and back of your head.
⁃ Allow all of your attention to be on your head and hair.
⁃ End with a few deep mindful breaths and proceed with your day.
