Sometimes the most important thing you can do for yourself is to just breathe. Yes, I know we all breathe every moment of everyday. But as the world is swirling around us at faster & faster speeds we all need to take time to just breathe. I wrote a blog a while ago on quieting the noise all around us & another blog on focus, these are very important things to do especially in our busy world. But the simplest thing we can do is just breathe. Even if you can only take a few moments, just breathe!
I know this sounds simple but it's one of the easiest ways to clear your mind. It's a quick & easy way to reconnect with your soul. I have found that most people never take the time to just breathe and this simple practice can truly change your life.
The way I like to do this is as follows: Sit down if at all possible, take a deep breath in through your nose, hold it for just a couple of seconds, then breathe out through your nose. As you are breathing out release all the tension and all the thoughts that are currently in your mind. Many times it will take more then one breath but even if it takes 3 this can be done in a total of 15 - 20 seconds.
Do it often especially when you feel stressed or need to focus. As you get better at letting go you'll find it's an amazing way to reconnect with your soul. Doing this simple thing anytime you feel you need to, will change your life.
The world moves to quickly in our time. In the past, the generations always had time to reflect & breathe but that's not always the case today. So be willing to take the first step to change your life. Breathe & live a more joyful life.
Quote of the day: "By simply taking a deep breathe & releasing the tension in your life, you will lead a more joyful/positive life! Do it today!"
