Take Time To Breathe
The breath is the link between the body and the mind. With intentional breath practices we can increase focus and energy and decrease fear and reactivity. The reasons are simple, when we slow down our breath, we slow down our nervous system. Slowing down the nervous system helps calm and slow down the mind. Quieter brains create a better focused mind, giving us time to make choices that have better results. Better choices create a life worth living, one breath at a time.
