“Inspire yourself. Feel your inhale and exhale. All day.”
Aaaah … breathing. The secret to Life! And the secret to relaxation. Simply breathing sighs of relief all day long is the trick. And yet, to remember to do so … not so easy.
Here’s an idea. When you awake today, in a quiet moment before you engage in your day, program yourself to remember. Imagine yourself returning to your breath time and time again all day long.
The good news is that we can walk and chew gum at the same time. We can be walking or we can be riding to work or the PTA meeting … and delight in our breath as we breathe in and relax as our breath flows out.
We can be listening to a friend or colleague and whether we are fascinated or bored, we can be focusing on and really feeling our inhale and our exhale.
We can quietly observe a leaf on a tree wiggling on the wind and simultaneously feel the wind of our breath rise and fall.
It is really, really fun to perfect this art. It gives you a whole new dimension to living.
When you begin the journey of playing with the breath, it will teach you everything you need to know.
The Breath is Infinite! And how many chances do you have to tap into something Infinite, especially when it is right under your nose?
