Day 1

Recommended Posts

Allowing myself to focus solely on my breath is empowering, to give all of my attention to myself and let go of everything else it that moment.  It is also comforting knowing it is ok to take that time and nothing bad is going to happen.

This impacts my state of mind by immediately generating a sense of calm and peace.  It provides a pause to just be and not feel the need to deal with any outside distractions, while providing an opportunity to become centered before you do need to face a situation allowing for a more balanced response rather than a rushed, defensive, or involuntary reaction.

Absolutely Jillian! I feel the same. I was out camping this weekend and we brought our dogs who were stirring quite a lot in the night outside of the tent. I was having difficulty sleeping after being woken up by them, but soon I remembered the breath. Just watching it helped me to let go of the stories about how 'bad' or stressful it was that I wasn't able to fall asleep swiftly and soon, I naturally sunk back into slumber.
