No doubt that you have heard this instruction before at some point in your life. Maybe it was a directive given because you needed to evaluate your response before moving in haste, or you needed to level up in your courage. When the doctor listens to your heart, this is usually the preceding instruction. Deep breathing is a physical way to open your lungs and release the stress that could take root in your heart. Inhale and release! Shallow breathing is usually our baseline breathing. We have to remember to use the total capacity of our lungs by taking deep breaths.
Deep breaths awaken you to life, internally and externally. Take in the air around you and remember the importance of fresh air. Mindfulness is taking a moment to recognize you are alive! Be intentional with this practice and welcome peace into your heart while being aware of the pace you are maintaining in your daily life. Have you taken a deep breath lately? Take this challenge to fill up your lungs and release your breath into the atmosphere in a conscionable way.
Take a Deep Breath!
