Mindful Moment: Armani Purrs

Armani would like to invite you to take a moment to be mindful and present with him.

Happy kitty =^_^=

Take some time to find a comfortable position, whatever that looks or feels like for you. Check in with your breathing, if that feels good for you, or ground yourself by noticing details in the space around you. Just feel yourself rest.

Armani will join you in your moment of full relaxation:

Recording: Armani purrs

Cats purr when they are happy, but they also purr when they are stressed, just like we use “happy” coping skills to help ourselves through difficult emotional moments.

Though we don’t completely understand the mechanism behind purring, there are theories that cat purrs can relax and promote healing in humans.

I hope this moment rejuvenated you for the day ahead.
