There are days when life can feel like a series of never ending responsibilities. You move through each experience anticipating the next, hoping to find a moment to catch your breath.
Breathing is exactly what you need more of when you’re pushing through. Breathing releases the stress that depletes your energy, productivity and happiness. Plus, it just plain feels good! It’s amazing how quickly three deep breaths will bring you back to center. While there are loads of studies that prove that conscious breathing works, experiencing the benefits allows you to know.
Make it a daily practice to start and end each day with three deep breaths.
Take a breath to become Present – feel your breath moving in and out at an even pace.
Take a breath to Center – feel a calm, peaceful balance return.
Take a breath to Ground – feel a deeper connection anchor in and stabilize your emotions.
“Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts.” –Thich Nhat Hanh
