Last night in a therapy group, we did a mindfulness exercise in which we focused on the temperature in the room. After the exercise, people shared that they were
- hot, and
- hot and cold at the same time.
This goes to show that different people in the same room at the same time can have very different experiences, even regarding something as measurable as the temperature.
Earlier in the day, I noticed that the temperature outside was the coldest I could ever recall for the Boston Red Sox home opener.
Later in the day, the temperature in the group room went up when people discussed what made them mad.
What makes you mad? How does that affect your temperature?
Here’s the last photo I snapped yesterday in the cold Boston temperature.
Thanks to all who helped me write this post about the temperature and — of course! — to you, no matter what the temperature is where you are.
