Breathe

Breathe. Breathing can transform your life. I have moments where my anxiousness takes over, my heart starts beating and my thoughts can get out of control. I consciously and physically have to remind myself to breathe. Close my eyes, and melt away.

If you feel stressed out and overwhelmed, breathe. It will calm you and release the tensions.

If you are worried about something coming up, or caught up in something that already happened, breathe. It will bring you back to the present.

If you are discouraged and have forgotten your purpose in life, breathe. It will remind you about how precious life is, and that each breath in this life is a gift you need to appreciate. Make the most of this gift.

If you have too many tasks to do, or are scattered during your workday, breathe. It will help bring you into focus, to concentrate on the most important task you need to be focusing on right now.

If you are spending time with someone you love, breathe. It will allow you to be present with that person, rather than thinking about work or other things you need to do.

If you are exercising, breathe. It will help you enjoy the exercise, and therefore stick with it for longer.

If you are moving too fast, breathe. It will remind you to slow down, and enjoy life more.

So breathe. And enjoy each moment of this life!

It seems so simple, but it can be transformative.

    Thank you for this advice Lisa.
    I’m overworked and feel really stressed at this time.
    Every year in the same period, i also feel a bit depressed due to the change of season (less sun, the temperatures drop, the days shorter..).I have to breathe.

    Thank You guys for your kind words, that means so much. I think we all have to take a step back from our lives at times to breathe, relax and truly evaluate where we are going and what we want! love xoxo L
