Smoking Meditation: Day 16

Change Posture

smokesomov

Smoking comes with postures: sitting postures, pacing postures, leaning postures. What’s yours? Study your smoking posture and try to change it throughout the day. For example, if you smoke sitting down, try standing a few times. If you tend to smoke leaning on a wall, try squatting. If you smoke sitting with your legs crossed and your smoking elbow resting on your knee, with an air of bohemian distance from the hubbub of the world, try crossing your legs differently than you usually do, or go for a walk with your cigarette. The bottom line is to reposition yourself for change!
