“Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.”
-L. Frank Baum
I can’t overemphasize the power of breath. A single deep breath has the power to calm your entire body – actually moves you one step closer to the parasympathetic nervous process of “rest and repose”. Instant relaxation, even if it’s only a little bit.
Traditions ranging from physical to emotional to spiritual emphasize the power of the breath as the way to change your state. I use breath in my practice to help anchor emotions in the body, to allow you to feel them more fully, to move and expand them.
So stop holding your breath. 🙂
Have a delicious day,
