Have you ever paid attention to how you breathe?
Are you a shallow breather or do you take deep breaths from the diaphragm?
If you are a shallow breather like me you are keeping your body in a constant state of fight or flight response.
Notice how tight and shut down your body is. Especially in the shoulders and chest.
When you take deeper breaths from the diaphragm your body relaxes. You become calmer.
Breathing is vital to living. There is an abundance of air available to all of us yet most people only take in a small amount.
If you are a shallow breather like me I challenge you to slow down and take more deep breaths.
Breathe in the magnificent free gift of air. Take in as much as you can possible hold.
I plan to make this my focus for the week.
Care to join me?
Let me know how it goes.
