How Often Do You Look In The Mirror?

A thought for today that comes from the Four Foundations in Mindfulness class:

When was the last time that you really looked at yourself in the mirror? If you have looked in the mirror, it was likely to shave, put makeup on, style your hair, or check your clothing choice. It seems vain to look in the mirror for any other reason. However, it can reconnect you with your body to stop for a few seconds and really take a look at who you are.


Try this out when you are feeling disconnected. Look in a full length mirror at each side of you, even
taking a moment to think about what you look like from the back.

Some things to consider:

1. How do you take care of your body?

2. What does it look like, really?

3. How do you feel and how are your feelings expressed in your body?

4. How connected are you to your body?
