The 5 senses in a mindful way
Our senses allow us to perceive the world around us.
hearing ~ sight ~ smell ~ taste ~ touch
Using the 5 senses mindfully helps us come back to the present moment and without judgment, and then helps us feel calm.
There is no wrong way!
Here are some ideas:
One sense at a time
All 5 senses, one after the other

5 things you can see
4 things you can touch
3 things you can hear
2 things you can smell
1 thing you can taste
When and where
Anytime and anywhere!
In your bed before falling asleep
As a passenger, in the car or the bus
