Three minute breathing space

A mini meditation to help you step out of the auto-pilot. You can apply this meditation throughout the day. For example when you feel stress, or when you want to fully enjoy a pleasant moment.

In three steps you practice with:
1. Becoming aware and accepting of how you are;
2. Directing and calming your attention;
3. Giving attention to your body, and continue from this broader awareness.

This meditation is written by Eva Potharst from the University of Amsterdam, and translated and narrated by Loes Glandorff. It is part of the programs ‘Mindful with your Baby’ and ‘Mindful with your Toddler’.
