Just Breathe

We have a habit (and, yes, that “we” certainly includes “me”!) of making things more complicated than they actually are.  Check in with your body; is it tight, constricted?  Breathe.  Visit your mind.   Do you feel anger, frustration, fear? Breathe.  Are your thoughts on a trip to the past or perhaps the future?  Breathe and bring them home.  It doesn’t have to be complicated or fancy to work.  Close your eyes, fill your lungs, feeling the chest rise into each nook and cranny.  Let the breath out, feeling your lungs empty completely.  And just breathe.

  1. Yup! I’m reading a book on Buddhism for Mothers that touches on this sort of thing nicely.

      1. Yeah. I’ve never really read much on Buddhism but I liked the idea. The subtitle was what clinched me- A Calm Approach to Parenting or something like that. I’m still early in, but I’ll let you know.
