“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” – Amit Ray
Your breath is so powerful yet so let it do its thing without any intention for so long. Right now, stop whatever you’re doing and take a minimum of three deep breaths. Be intentional about them, involve your whole body and stretch while doing so if you can. It is your body, your lungs, and your breath so you can do whatever you want with it.
Remind yourself to live in the moment because it is a gift. Drink some water, make some tea, ground yourself.
Breathing is something our bodies do without much help from our minds, but regardless of this, it’s important to think about breathing sometimes. There’s a reason yoga is so popular and healing. It forces you to focus on your breath and how your body feels and nothing else.
Right now do that, you don’t have to be upside down in some phenomenal yoga position to get the effects. If you’re sitting in a chair feel your breath and your body in that chair. The same thing goes if you’re standing, or walking, or doing whatever it is that you’re doing right now.
