What’s in a Breath?


One of the lessons I have learned in life is how to breathe in those anxious and painful times we all experience sooner or later.

This is what I have learned:

Sit quietly in a comfortable position

Place tongue behind top teeth and breathe in slowly through the nose to the count of seven.

Place tongue behind bottom teeth and breathe out slowly through pursed lips to the count of eight.

Repeat eight times.

I usually do this two or three times in one sitting, a few times a day, and at bed time.

What’s in a breath? Life.

What’s in a breathing exercise? A more relaxed life.

Happy Saturday.

 

Take Time Out


Here it is a weekend again. Does it feel that time is zooming by and you are wondering where it has gone? Take time out and just be still beside a quiet stream if you are lucky enough to be near one. If not, just gaze at this one until your world slows down a bit. Happy Saturday.
