Taking a breath

Life goes so quickly sometimes, and the world is crying out for our attention in so many ways. How and when can we stop and take a breath? I have some ideas….

  • when a notification sounds on your phone, use it as an invitation to take a breath. You will be about 8 seconds slower to respond to the phone…but your mind will feel more settled
  • play a game with yourself where you try and take a good breath before or after specific routine activities. At a red light? Take a breath. About to leave the house? Take a breath. Washing your hands? Take a breath. About to eat? I think you know what to do!
  • during a conversation, pause to breathe. You could even breathe while you listen!
  • are there times you could put your phone out of reach? Now that’s a crazy idea! Happy breathing, everyone!
