Here We Go:

Sit Down 

Deep breath in through the nose and slowly let it out.

See

Notice 5 things you can see and name them in your mind,

(or to your cat)

Hear

Notice 4 things you can hear

(At this point one of the noises is probably your cat meowing back at you)

Touch

Notice 3 things you can touch

(Yep you guessed it, the cat)

Smell

Notice 2 things you can smell

(I advise against smelling the cat)

Taste

Notice 1 thing you can taste

(Please don't lick the cat)

Take a deep breath in and slowly let it out

Loved this mindful exercise. Please consider shouting me a coffee
