The 44 – Practice 2: Body Scan
By Leo Babauta
So you’ve been doing Practice 1 (breath meditation) for four days, and you’re ready to start Practice 2 … congratulations!
The next meditation is around awareness of body sensations. We’ll scan our entire body, one part at a time, trying to bring non-judgmental awareness to whatever sensations we can notice.
This is a very fundamental practice because it will set up the foundation for future practices. Plus it can be a relaxing practice!
The Practice – Body Scan
In this video, I guide you through the practice of bringing your awareness to your body, one part at a time.
Please note that if you want to do it for shorter (or longer), you can do it without the guided meditation after watching the video for instructions.
Practice this every day for four days. Feel free to also spend a minute noticing your breath after you’re done with the body scan.
