A Minute of Mindfulness with Mia – Sensory Awareness

June 12, 2022

Welcome to another minute of mindfulness with Mia today. We’re going to do a sensory awareness exercise, which helps us be in the present moment because our senses are always right here and that’s the essence of mindfulness to be present on purpose.

So these are questions to just get you to return to your senses:

“Can you feel the distance between your ears?”

“Can you notice your arms touching your body?”

“Can you feel the bottoms of your feet?”

“Can you imagine a beautiful day at the beach?”

“Can you feel how one arm may be heavier than the other?”

“Can you feel a change in the temperature in the air around you?”

“Can you imagine how it would be to feel like a rag doll?”

“Can you notice any tightness in your left? Forearm”

“Can you imagine what it would feel like to float on a cloud?”

“Can you picture something far away?”

“Can you imagine floating in warm water?”

“Can you imagine a beautiful flower?”

Hope you’ve enjoyed the sensory awareness exercise. Have a great rest of your day.

What is ARFID and how can it help children who suffer from eating disorders?

Often, the children who suffer from ARFID experience a choking sensation from the smells or the feeling of certain foods in their mouths. Vomiting is also not unusual. The experience of these sensations leads to the child avoiding or restricting certain foods. Malnutrition then becomes an issue with this disorder.
