Chapter 9, Page 29, Book 16


Live. And Live Well. BREATHE. Breathe in and Breathe deeply. Be PRESENT. Do not be past. Do not be future. Be now. On a crystal clear, breezy 70 degree day, roll down the windows and FEEL the wind against your skin. Feel the warmth of the sun. If you run, then allow those first few breaths on a cool Autumn day to FREEZE your lungs and do not just be alarmed, be ALIVE. Get knee-deep in a novel and LOSE track of time. If you bike, pedal HARD

September 29th - Breathe deeply

Take a deep breath.

Count your blessings.

Seize the moment while you can.

There have been more than a few times that I’ve forgotten to breath lately.

 Breathing is supposed to be one of the simplest yet most effective ways to manage stress's effects on your body.  When you’re stressed, you have a tendency to breathe more shallowly and rapidly, some people even hold their breath, depriving their body of vital oxygen.  To promote relaxation, breathe slowly and deep. Breathing deeply and slowly instantly calms us down mentally as well as physically

Sometimes the best thing you can do is just breathe

That advice doesn't just apply to me and my life, it applies to all of us and we all sometimes need the reminder that we need to take a deep breath .  When you breathe in deeply you invite brand new life and possibilities.  Think about it: You can go weeks without food, days without water but only minutes without air.  Air is so much more than just oxygen. Your breath connects you to infinite potential and to the pure joy of being alive.

Fear less, hope more; eat less, chew more; whine less breathe more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours.

I have been doing more deep breathing lately. It has helped. Just the past few days I felt like I could breathe again until the next season comes by. I hope things settle down for you soon, Ma.
