A little question for ya: when last do you remember taking a full, deep, and refreshing breath?
No need to be tough on yourself if it was longer than you’d like. How about taking one now… Far too often, we can be so focused on what we have before us, that we can forget to pace ourselves, and take moments (throughout the day) to consciously slow down…and fill up…to breathe in fresh air, enjoy the many gifts in nature, and be energized.
Nowadays, these paradoxical buzz words seem to come in pairs and they’re the topic of much discussion: “hustle” and “calm,” followed closely by “stress,” and “wellness,” “success” and “anxiety,” then “challenge” and “contentment.” These pairs of conflicting words pretty much reflect the struggle many of us have with finding (or feeling) peace amidst a list of to-dos and goals of to-bes.
Here’s a little video I made for you, as a visual invitation to treat yourself to those refreshing moments starting once a day, even if it’s for 5 minutes at first.
