A Pausing Script

I sit in a comfortable position. I adjust my body just right.
I quiet my mind. I take a deep breath in–and then exhale.

I take another deep
breath in… breathing in positive relaxation.

And this time, as I exhale – I breathe out whatever it is I need to let go off.

I release any tension.

I say to myself the words, “calm and relaxed”.
Calm and relaxed to quiet my thoughts, to quiet my body.
I adjust my body in a way that will be most comfortable for myself.
I begin to let the natural rhythm of my body take me into relaxation.

If any thoughts of the day interrupt me,
I will acknowledge them and then I will let them pass.

Perhaps I want to imagine putting my worries in the clouds for
the moment and watch them slowly drift away.
I allow this time for myself… so that I can unwind completely…

I let my breath slowly flow easily and gently through me.

As I gently inhale and exhale– relaxation is moving through me.

My muscles are relaxed.

Any stress or discomfort is slowly floating away.
My emotions are calm and peaceful.
At this moment I am at peace with myself.
I can sit quietly and calmly.
I will trust the silence.
I reaffirm positive thoughts.
I am open to receive calmness.
I give myself the gift of taking a moment to focus inward.
I feel good I know how to relax myself.

I can choose to change my focus by taking a deep breath in and then exhaling. I exhale any frustration or doubts.
Pause… When I’ve taken enough
time-out, and I feel ready, I will open my eyes
feeling refreshed and rejuvenated – with a renewed sense of inner calmness.
