Today’s visualization is called “How I want to Feel Today” from “Good Morning Yoga” by Mariam Gates and Sarah Jane Hinder
(Grown-up Tip: You can listen to this visualization here)!
“Lay back in Resting Pose and get comfortable. Close your eyes and let your hands rest gently by your sides. Stretch a little taller by lifting your spine and then gently roll your shoulders back to press into the mat.
Take a deep breath in… and let that long breath out. Let your whole body relax. Feel the air as you take another deep breath in and let another long breath out. Does it feel cool? Does it feel warm?
Now, let a word come into your mind that says how you want to feel today. It could be a word like joyful, kind, friendly, or curious. It could be a word like happy, peaceful, enthusiastic, or brave. Choose the word that best describes how you want to feel. Hold it in your mind.
As you breathe in, fill yourself up with the feeling you want, like a balloon… and as you breathe out, send this feeling out into the world. Feel how you want to be today. Take another deep breath in… and let a long breath out. Open your eyes. You are ready for this day!”
