Be Mindful when you wake up in the morning. 

 When you wake up in the morning before you get out of bed, bring your attention to your breathing. 

Locate where the breath sensations are most noticeable – in the abdomen, at the nostrils – and ‘surf’ with full awareness on those breath waves, fully in the moment. 

Observe five mindful breaths. This will give you a great start as you awaken slowly to face the new day. 

Remember, each breath is full of new life, unlimited energy and dependable support. 

You may wish to do this sitting over the side of the bed or on a chair. 

Experiment by expanding your awareness around your breath until it includes a sense of the body as a whole, breathing.
“Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again” 

 Thich Nhat Hahn
