  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings about progress and notice the first thought that comes to mind, along with the one feeling that stands out the most. Then sit in silence with only the feeling and see how it flows throughout your body, if it settles in places or not.  When you’re ready move on to another thought and feeling that stands out about progress in your life.
