Let it be joyful. You deserve some joy.

In this next part, choose a time of day to make the consumption of this beverage a mini-ritual. This is where you use as many of your senses as possible while you drink. Notice what it looks like as it cascades into your chosen container. What do you hear? Is there a splash or maybe a fizz finding its way to your ears? What does it smell like? Is it light and sweet or is it rich and dark? Feel the weight of your container as you clasp your hands around it. What is the temperature like as the liquid passes over your lips and down your throat? Is it bubbly or still? Do you feel it anywhere in your body besides your mouth and your throat?


If it's easier, pick one or two senses to focus on and follow this for as long as your attention holds


Sit back. Rest in your growing awareness.


Think about making any future first sips an embodied experience like this one.


See?


You can do this.


One sweet little sip at a time.
