Something I like to do when I'm trying to "shift" into a better state, is to walk as though my feet are kissing the Earth. You might have heard about this if you practice walking meditation.
The idea is to slow way down. When one does a walking meditation, they purposely and gently touch the heel of one foot to the Earth. The ball of that foot rolls down and each toe settles on the ground. The other foot takes a step and these steps are repeated.
Walking meditations are very slow. But you can still apply this practice to your daily life with faster movements. Try walking at your normal pace and imagine that your feet are kissing the Earth. Just having this intention will add a quality of gentle awareness and care to your steps. You may find that your pace will slow slightly. I find it is a great heart and sense opener as well. It fills me with wonder and joy and my stress and worries melt away. I try to do this whenever I can during my walks home from work.
