One of the best times of day to cultivate present-moment awareness is right upon waking. Each day is a gift, but all too often we don’t recognize this upon waking. Instead, we jump out of bed and quickly tend to our tasks and to-do lists. We miss the opportunity to savor the start of our day with presence.

This morning mindfulness meditation script is an invitation to bring more awareness to those quiet moments after waking. It can help set the stage for a mindful day and deepen our awareness - of breath, of body, and of the new day.

Use this script to enhance your personal mindfulness practice - or consider using it to guide others. May we all learn to bring more presence to the moments our eyes open to greet the sun.

Here’s a Sample of the “A Morning Mindfulness Script to Start Your Day with Awareness” Guided Meditation Script:

Waking Up with Awareness

One of the best techniques to help bring mindfulness
to everyday living is to start your day with it.

Many of us have a rushed morning routine
and do not pause to be present until later in the day.

This exercise can help you start off your day with a mindful moment,
bolstering your practice in the coming hours.

When you wake up, take a moment to pause before you get up.

If you use an alarm clock, try attaching a sticky note to it to remind yourself.

Lying in bed, tune in to the body.

Feel the body resting, and notice how it feels to begin moving and stretching.

Bring your awareness to the breath.
