Your Wiggle Warrior® Training:
First, give yourself a hug, and let out a big sigh.
(Really, try it!)
Next, cup your hands over your eyes and take three ocean sounding breaths.
Next, lie down and reach your hands over your head 10 times and think about one thing you’re grateful for.
Then take 3 calming breaths.
Now, ask yourself, “What am I sad about? Did I lose something or someone? Am I upset about something that happened?”
When sadness arrives, it’s time to slow down.
Take the time to sit with your sadness and ask it what it needs.
Does your sadness need a hug? A nap? Some alone time? A cup of hot chocolate?
As long as you don't reject your sadness, it will normally calm down. As you sit with your sadness, be curious so that it can show you what to do next.
It’s okay to feel sad.
Sadness arrives to help you honor a loss, accept a change, or just open up to the present moment.
Take all the time you need.
