In the previous DBT skill training session, we did a very special mindfulness that is the mindfulness of ‘Showing Appreciations for our Body and Mind’.
We observed and showed appreciation for our eyes, nose, lips, ears, neck, hands, feet, and hips,
our stomach, liver, kidneys, lungs, and heart.
Lastly, we showed appreciation for the various emotions within our minds.
If you are ready, join the mindful journey of showing appreciation for your mind and body.
Relax your shoulders in a comfortable position.
Close your eyes. Think of all the elements of your body and mind
and thank them mindfully.
Dear eyes, thank you for letting us see our beloved ones,
the beautiful scenery, and what we wish to see.
Dear neck, thank you for supporting our head and for allowing the expression of opinions.
Dear feet, thank you for guiding us where we wish to go,
and for supporting our whole body.
Dear stomach, thank you for absorbing the essential nutrition for our body.
Dear heart, thank you for restlessly transporting oxygen and nutrition inside our bodies even when we are asleep.
Dear various emotions within, thank you for conveying important messages and protecting us.
Slowly and deeply breathe-in and out.
If you feel you are ready,
open your eyes and come back to the present.
