Living in the moment

Present-moment practices involve syncing up with your body so you’re in the same place and not lost in thought, predicting your future or tumbling through a story about the past. Being able to stay in the moment has numerous health benefits including lower levels of stress and anxiety, improved mood and a sense of well-being. If we ignore our stressors, they will eventually undermine our health.

Practiced across all our resorts and spas, Six Senses Meditation brings together different tools that will help you stay present, focusing on what’s happening right now. In the short term, it will help you “check in” and focus. In the long run, it can bring balance and laughter back into your life and help you to reconnect with others and yourself on a more meaningful level.

If you can’t wait until you join us, there are some techniques you can try at home.

  1. Arrange your body comfortably with a straight back in any sitting position.
  2. Take a small piece of fruit (something you like) and eat it, then close your eyes and take three deep breaths.
  3. Focus your attention on the third eye, located between the eyebrows. Try to focus on any patterns, lights and colors.
  4. Shift to noticing any sounds you hear outside of the body, small or large.
  5. Focus on your nose and feel the breath going through your nostrils. Inhale more deeply if you have trouble with this step.
  6. Focus on the taste in your mouth and try to remember and savor the taste of the fruit you ate earlier.
  7. Bring the attention to your feet and how they feel on the surface below them.
  8. Focus on the heart chakra (center of your chest) and feel compassion and love for yourself. Then feel love for the room, the nature outside and the life around you.
  9. Try to expand your heart so it fills the room. After two minutes, bring the chakra back down to your chest. Imagine a protective field around you. This can be flowers, glass, wood, or in fact you can construct it from anything you like. You will radiate love throughout the day and be protected from any energies interfering with your own.
  10. Take three deep breaths and open your eyes.
