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!
