Omer Day One: Chesed (lovingkindness) within Chesed

Daily Omer 7-Minute Wellness Practice Day One: loving-kindness squared ๐Ÿ’•

The Omer begins with an abundance of love โ€” Chesed (lovingkindness) within Chesed. We therefore begin our daily wellness practice with love: love to our own body, mind, and spirit; and love to those who sustain us. ๐Ÿ’—

Todayโ€™s practice:

  • 1.5 minutes deep belly breathing – focus on breath
  • 2 minutes journaling: what do you love about yourself?
  • 2 minutes of outreach: send a text message to 2-3 people (your partner, friends, family). Tell them a few things you love about them.
  • 1.5 minutes meditation – How might you bring love more greatly into the world?

Materials needed:

  • Seat or floor for sitting
  • Phone
  • Timer
  • Notebook or paper + writing utensil

๐ŸŒ€Hope youโ€™re able to carve out seven minutes for yourself to try this on. Let us know how it goes!๐ŸŒ€

This post is part of our Omer Wellness Series – a daily 7-minute opportunity for introspection and intentional focus on caring for ourselves, each other, and our environment in this incredibly challenging time.
