Becoming present one breath at a time.
Becoming present requires us to detach from chronic thinking, worrying and activity. If we focus on our breath we have a bridge between the mind and the body through which we can focus our energy in one spot for even just a moment. Studies show that a few moments of mindfulness are just as effective as a longer time because our body doesn’t need a lot of breaks, just really effective ones.
Practice deepening your breath, focusing on deep belly breathing with a slight pause at the top of the inhale and bottom of the exhale.
