Eyes Shut; Senses On

Pick one of your daily, routine tasks or activities - something you are very familiar with and could do with your eyes closed. Today, do it with your eyes closed!
This could be brushing your teeth, washing your hair, putting your shoes on, talking on the phone to a friend, or holding a yoga pose. Go through all of the motions of the activity without engaging your sense of sight. Notice if it feels differently. Become aware of the depth and dimension of these everyday tasks. Feel for more richness and texture in everything that you do.
