    Loved this!! Sort of the 3 step with a skillful look at the body sensations! Thank you, for the vacuum cleaner breath idea. Makes me want to call this “suck it up” practice, but done very mindfully of course. Really neat. Thank you.

    The French Press was so funny! I’ve used one every morning for 30ish years and will now add it to my practice! 🙂

    I can use this with students today! Our theme is storage and preservation, and this practice is perfect for talking about beneficial “bacteria” (thoughts/feelings) crowding out the harmful “bacteria”! Always in relationship with each other, and all necessary and important to our personal ecologies.

    I absolutely love this practice. It has been so helpful to me at the end of a very difficult week. It is nice to know that I can now start my weekend in a much better frame of mind and at more peace within my body. Thank you so much for these daily practice challenges!
