We are only on day 4, but I bet things are starting to change for you. Let’s keep going and remember to share your experiences in the comments.
Each day we will continue to learn via experience. The theory is there to help, but the experience creates the change. If you want to practice any of the preceding activities along with the new ones, you are welcome to. It is fun to see how much change we can feel each day.
About 60% of our bodies are made of water. Every time I think of this, I am amazed. The fact comes and goes, but my thirst never quits. I need water to survive. One day I started to consider not only my need for water, but also the relationship I had to it. I really had a physical, mental, and emotional relationship with water. Wow!
As I became mindful of water, I learned that I could ask it to help me. I could ask the water to help mellow out my negative feelings just by drinking it and introducing it to my body.
Activity: Every time you drink a glass of water, focus on the purity of water, its existence, and its purpose as you drink it. If you want, try asking it to help relax the negative emotions you might be feeling before you drink. Literally say to the water, “Water, please help me balance my feelings.” Then give it time to begin to mellow things out.
Hint: Pay particular attention to every sensation that is generated by drinking water. Connect with its importance in our lives. Over 60% of your body is made of water. Look at how water has been part of your entire life each and every day.
