Scanning the body, ask such questions as "what does my body feel like to me in this instant?" "What/where are my aches and pains? Where are my comforts? Can I follow the physical sensation with my breath? Can I watch my breath rise and fall? Can I feel the expansion of the breath throughout the body and send the breath to the ache that is calling my attention?
