My eyes are closed, and I scan my body from head to toe. What do I feel right in this moment?
Eyebrows, chin, jaw. Neck — it’s tight and hurts.
Shoulder, hurts. Elbows, wrists, they’re on fire. Fingertips are tingling.
A flare at my hips crackles and hisses, screaming through my legs to my feet.
I identify areas where I’m in pain, take a deep breath, and visualize exhaling into the pain. It dissolves, even if only briefly.
