Taking a Breath

Stressed? Anxious? Rushing from task to task? - If you find any of these descriptions applying to you, maybe it's time to pause and take a breath! -
  1. Pause.
  2. Breathe in and out slowly, perhaps 3 seconds for the in-breath and 3 seconds for the out-breath. Or if you are particularly anxious, try making the out-breath twice as long as the in-breath if you can (6 seconds)
  3. As you breathe, try to focus your attention on your breathe as it enters your nose and then exits your mouth.
  4. Repeat the exercise a few times.
  5. Then resume the tasks that you want to do. Hopefully at a fresher and less stressed pace.
