Marie T. Russell's Daily Inspiration
The focus for today is: I take the time to stop and breathe deeply.
Have you ever noticed that when you are tense, stressed, or in fear, you tend to hold your breath? Unfortunately, this makes the situation worse as our brain needs oxygen to function at its best.
Our breath is the source of life. When we stop breathing, we die. To life fully and at our best, we need to breathe consciously and completely, filling our lungs with fresh oxygenated air. As much as possible, go outside, or open a window, and breathe, breathe deeply.
One way to change our perspective on events taking place in our life, is to breathe slowly and deeply. When in a tense or stressful situation, stop and take a deep breath, then let it out slowly and completely. And repeat the process until your energy and your perspective have shifted.
Today's Focus was excerpted from the InnerSelf.com article:
