A <1min exercise to connect with your feelings

All it takes is a mirror

Dear you,

Here's a quick experiment if you haven't tried mirror work before.

Let's do this one without too much thinking and rationalizing, OK?

It will be worth it, I promise.

Afterwards, drop a comment or hit reply to share how it felt.

Before you do this mirror exercise 👇🏼

  • Find a mirror where you can be alone and undisturbed

  • Then look at yourself. Really, look into your eyes

    No preening, no posing

  • Breathe slowly

    Unclench your jaw

    Ease your shoulders down

    Unclench your toes

    One more breath

Now say to yourself:

I love you

I am going to take care of you

You're going to be OK

Yes, you can say it out loud.

No overthinking. Just do it.

How did it feel?

How did you see yourself?

Did you feel any tenderness towards the face in the mirror?

Did it feel strange or emotional, or just indifferent?

I don't know about you, but I felt like crying. In a good way.

It felt emotional and tender. Like a step towards accepting and loving myself.

I saw myself as a little vulnerable, but felt lighter afterwards. Like I was going to be OK.

That's why I am sharing this with you.
