Today, I was feeling under the weather. Tired. Overwhelmed. Unmotivated.
I took 5 minutes. Closed my eyes and breathed deeply.
I listened as the cars drove by on the street outside my office window.
When I opened my eyes, I was given clarity and a little bit more focus.
I didn’t need a fancy yoga studio, chimes, incense, candles, or a light-up Buddha statue to help me breath deep. All I needed was my own dedication to my self.
Deep breathing sends a message to your brain that it’s okay to relax.
No matter where you’re at.
Give it a try.
