Feeling Like You Are On Automatic Pilot?

Are you feeling like you are automatic pilot during the day?

You know a bit like the movie Groundhog Day? Maybe the following activity can help you as it interrupt the ‘automatic pilot’ by bringing you back to the present moment.

  • S – stop and interrupt your ‘automatic pilot’ by concentrating on the present moment
  • T – take a breath and bring your experience of the in-breath and the out-breath
  • O – open to observation. Connect to the experience of this moment and inquire with a sense of curiosity
      • What am I seeing?
      • What am I feeling?
      • What am I sensing?
      • What am I hearing?
      • What am I smelling?
      • What am I thinking?
  • P – proceed and reconnect with your surroundings and with your activity in the moment.


Please note – this process is one of the things we refer to in the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course and has been adapted from a handout from the Centre for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts.
