If you’re new to me and all of this Art of Money stuff, you may not know what I mean by doing a “body check in” and why that has anything to do with anything about money. Well, this little technique may not sound like much, but this simple little exercise has changed not only my relationship to money, but has done the same for the thousands of people that have put the Art of Money work into practice in their lives. (Turns out it also comes in handy if you lose your way while speaking on stage, as I found out at the Lincoln Center.) If you’re reading this, it probably means you’re interested in improving your money life in some way. If that’s true, you’re in luck.

If I could make a wish and have you walk away from this series of Money Mocha posts with just one thing, it would be this: that you learn to do a body check-in and remember to use it the next time you feel a money challenge come up for you. Learning to do a body check-in is pretty simple. It’s like a quick mini meditation that grounds your awareness in your body and allows you to find clarity within the sometimes murky emotions around money. But here’s the thing, and this is super important: the body check-in is something to be practiced before, during, and after any moment of working on your money life. This isn’t a “one and done” kind of a tool. It’s something to be practiced all the time during daily money interactions, money decisions, or in money conversations. I’ve made a short guided audio recording for you to make it easy to learn. Just press play below and we can do a quick body check-in right now. And then next time a challenging emotion comes up around money? Remember this little exercise and give it a try. It has worked wonders for the thousands of folks that have learned it in my Art of Money methodology:
