Checking In: a relaxation and story for your naptime routine

Update: 2020-03-30


Danny the dump truck feels a little down. Dory has an idea. Maybe checking in to the maintenance garage will help him feel better.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:24

Narrator: Male

Checking In Excerpt:

As the little dump truck trudged forward slowly, Dory, the other dump truck, drove past him and asked, “Is everything ok Danny?”

“Yeah. Why?” Danny mumbled, busy concentrating on driving forward.

“You’re moving pretty slow this morning, and your tires look flat.” Dory responded.

“I wanted to ask you about that.” Danny said. “My tires are really squishy, and my wheels hurt. I’m having trouble moving today. Have you ever felt like that?”

Dory said, “Yes, when I have a flat tire. I usually go to the maintenance garage to check my tires and oil every other week, so my tires stay full. When did you get your last check up?”

Danny laughed and said, “Oh I’m too busy to take time for that. I probably haven’t stopped by that garage for almost a year. I’m a healthy truck.”

Today’s Meditation: Feel your muscles relax as you check in with your body from head to toe.
