While still in bed you might consider one place to soften in your body.
Notice where you feel some tension or tightness. Stiffness or rigidity. Perhaps you can begin to soften your jaw a little, your eyes, or maybe soften your breath.
It might be useful to imagine or bring to mind a memory you have of a safe, warm, lovely place. I imagine my toes in soft sand, and that they are as soft and supple as when I was a wee toddler.
I turn over and feel the softness of the duvet cover, my pillow.
Maybe I imagine something soft like the these strange little plants (pictured above) that I seem to be obsessed with. Of them blowing softly in the breeze.
Maybe I imagine the soft snow, landing on my face, as I go out for a walk.
Life is hard enough. Might we move towards, bring in, feel in some way, a touch of softness to it.
Even by just imagining it to be so.
