The body scan is one of the most effective ways to begin a mindfulness meditation practice. Body scanning involves paying attention to parts of your body and noticing any sensations you are feeling, without judgement. Here you are guided through a gradual sequence, from head to feet.
With time and practice the body scan meditation can help to train the mind to be more open, more aware of sensory experiences and will build your ability to focus and be fully present in your life.
The body scan can also promote, body awareness, stress awareness and relaxation.
