Zen Like

Breathe. When you find yourself speeding up and stressing out, pause, and take a deep breath. Take a couple more. Really feel the air coming into your body, and feel the stress going out. By fully focusing on each breath, you bring yourself back to the present, and slow yourself down. It’s also nice to take a deep breath or two — do it now and see what I mean.

It's one of my goals for the year. Read a great article called The 10 Essential Rules for Slowing Down. Hoping to have a slow, nice, long holiday weekend. I think my problem is I get so excited for it all to happen that I just rush from one activity to the next, instead of really taking time to breathe in the moment.

Taking a moment to breathe right now.

This is the mantra of my life. I get so much anxiety and stress that the only thing that helps is to just focus on breathing. I even visualize the stress shooting out of my feet and my body becoming calm.

I know, could I be more of a hippie?

Be well!
