My Body, My Friend

Everybody likes to spend time with their friends, tell them that they are looking really cool, and sometimes even surprise them with lit- tle gifts. You know your best friends that well that you can tell how they are and feel just by looking at them. Even if they have only just opened the door, you already know what’s up with them. Your friends are always there for you and you can totally rely on them.

My body is something like a «Wunderwuzzi» / miracle. Not only is my body my best friend, but it even functions all by itself! Isn’t that just incredible? Only when I overdo it will my body sometimes tell me «STOP! I do NOT like that!». If I don’t listen to it then, it will go on strike. Then I understand that I have to take care of it, that I will have to take time to listen to it and to find out what it really needs.

Friendships need to be cultivated. The more careful we treat our «miracle», the better it will be functioning.

«Practice makes perfect»

Now take your time for a«Body Scan»!

Find your favorite spot in your house or room
and breathe in and out from your head to your toes.

Observe how you feel doing just that.
Are your toes tingling,
are they warm or cold,
how is your breath flowing through your body?

You can do this exercise alone,
together with your best friend,
and even in your classroom.

Body Scan

Bei dieser Übung geht es nicht darum, etwas zu verändern oder zu erreichen. Bei dieser Übung sollst Du beobachten, was im Augenblick ist und es zulassen / annehmen.

Let yourself fall.
Learn to watch snakes.

Plant impossible gardens.

Invite someone dangerous to tea. Make small signs that say yes and distribute them
everywhere in your house.

Become a friend of
and uncertainty.

Look forward to dreams.
Cry at movies, swing as high as you can on a swing in the moonlight.
Nurture different moods.
Refuse to be responsible –
do it for love!

Pass money on.

Do it now.
Believe in magic. Laugh a lot.
Bathe in the moonlight.

Dream wild dreams, full of fantasy.

Draw on the walls.
Read every day.
Imagine you’ve been bewitched.
Giggle with children. Listen to the elderly.
Open yourself.

Dive in. Be free. Prize yourself.
Let fear fall away, play with everyone. Converse with the child in you.
You are innocent.

Build a fort with blankets.

Get wet. Hug trees. Write love letters.

What makes a good friend?

For me, being a friend means being …
