A 10 minute Savasana every day for 30 consecutive days
Set a timer for 10 minutes, preferably one with a gentle sound or simply a vibration. Lie on your back in savasana, finding complete relaxation of the body. If you wish, put a pillow under your knees or your legs up the wall. Once you find physical relaxation, begin to observe your breathing without changing or analyzing it in any way. After a few rounds of breath, begin to match a visualization to your breathing. See a light at your heart center; when you inhale, for as long as you inhale, watch that light travel up to your forehead, arriving at the top of your breath. As your inhalation becomes your exhalation, the light rests at your brow. When you exhale, for as long as you exhale, watch the light travel from your forehead back down to your heart arriving at the bottom of your exhalation. As your exhalation becomes your inhalation, the light rests at your heart. Allow the visualization to match your breathing rather than manipulating your breathing to match your visualization. Continue until the timer sounds. If at any point, you notice your mind has become chatty or wandered, gently and kindly choose to return your attention to the light moving with your breath.
