Dear Friend ~
Are you breathing?
No really. I'm serious.
We hold our breath more often than you think.
We breathe shallow (up in our chest and throat) a lot of the time.
We live in our heads! Thankfully we are all waking up to the importance of living more in the body and now have access to a variety of tools that will take us below the neck and into our bodies (where the good stuff REALLY is).
A few days ago one of my friends posted on Facebook:
"When life is overwhelming, what do you do?"
I immediately thought of the quickest and cheapest way towards healing and calm. The breath.
Conscious breathing is where it's at, folks.
Because of that plea from my friend, I was inspired to create this sweet and easy conscious breathing video and thought it'd be a nice gift for each one of us!
At Lucidity festival a few weeks ago I attended a conscious breathing workshop with the amazing Rabia Hayak, founder of Do As One, whose mission is to make the world a happier and healthier place through conscious breathing. Ahhh! Check out the site where you can log onto their "rooms" and practiceconscious breathing, chanting, meditation and laughter yoga (for FREE) with people from all over the world.
We have so many tools at our fingertips for healing and rejuvenation.
So when you are feeling overwhelmed or anxiety-ridden, remember that the breath is free and quick and easy!
Have you cosciously breathed today?
Make it a daily practice and notice how your world changes.
Breathe on my brothers and sisters...and let me know how it goes!
