Tiny Teaches – No. 6 Meditation of the 5 Senses


(gentle music) – Hi, my name’s Gillian Dalgliesh, and I’m a stress management consultant and a clinical hypnotherapist. And I’m putting together a series of what I call Tiny Teaches. They’re video clips of
about 60 seconds long, sometimes a little bit longer, and each one gives you a
stress busting technique, that you can use in your everyday life. So this one is called The
Meditation Of The Five Senses. And what you’re gong to find
out, is that we go into it, is that you’re gonna consider each of your five senses, one at a time, for about 10 seconds. You can do this meditation anywhere, and to tell you the truth, nobody even needs to know
that you’re doing it, ’cause you don’t have to shut your eyes, I just ask that people lower there eyes, and just look down. So what to do first of all, is to take a deep breath in
your nose, and your mouth. And I’d like you to start to become aware, for 10 seconds, I’ll
guide you through this, of the sounds that you can hear outside the room that you’re in right now. And gradually the sounds
in the middle distance. And the sounds around you. What can you hear? Now, start to become aware
of what you can feel. Your shoes on your feet. Where you’re seated. Perhaps you can feel the air
on the skin of your face. What can you feel? Can you feel your hair? And the next one, is what can you smell? Normally unless there’s a
smell that’s very distinctive, or strong, or sweet, or unpleasant, we don’t really notice
all the smells around us. And we don’t use this
particular sense in general. And the next one, is what can you taste? We usually have tastes in our mouths. But unless they’re very distinctive, we don’t even notice that. We’re not using that
sense as much as we could. And the last one, is I’d
like you to look down, and note what you can see. Not the objects, the colors,
the shapes, the lights, the darks, the shadows. What can you see? And once again, take
deep breath in your nose, and out your mouth. And just come back into the room. You’ve given yourself a
minute of mindfulness there, that is very healing, and soothing, and refreshing for you. Try it and see. Thanks for listening
