My Favorite Mindfulness Acronym!
While completing my mindfulness certification, I learned the fantastic acronym, RAIN.
I absolutely LOVE this simple, on-the-go, mindfulness exercise. It has helped me improve my emotional intelligence, self-awareness, and self-compassion tremendously.
Here’s how it goes…
Recognize - “I’m feeling _________”
Accept - “...and that’s okay.”
Investigate - “What got me here? What am I thinking about? Where in my body do I feel this emotion?”
Nurture - “What can I do to care for myself right now as I experience this feeling?”
In the video, I talk in greater detail on each step and give an example from my own life.
I hope you’ll give RAIN a try for yourself, and let me know how it works for you!
