Note: I admit it. This Try-It indulges the little one in you that did not fully express his/her anger.
Minute one: Bring to mind a recent or distant experience of anger, frustration, agitation, irritation or rage. Allow the story to fully engage your senses.
Minute two: With the story and emotion in full energy, tune into your body and notice where the tension is most alive.
Minute three: Now, vigorously move your body. Stomp your feet. Flap your arms. Clench your teeth and jaws. Gyrate your torso. Fully engage your body!
Minute four: Add sound to your movement to match the energy. Experiment with high and low tones. Sustain the sound that most enlivens and matches you.
Minute five: Thoroughly exhaust the energy you brought to this practice. Transition finding your breath into a calm presence.
Complete your practice by reflecting on your story and notice the shifts in your body (thoughts, feelings and sensations). What has opened for you?
