Business Stress Cool Tool # 19: Breath AwarenessMay 10, 2012
Breath awareness is one of my favorite de-stressing tools. Three cool things about breath.
- Ever present. It’s true that if you stop breathing all your stress will go away. But as long as you’re still breathing, you’ll have this tool at the ready to help you de-stress.
- Free. No cost to install or maintain this tool.
- Reminds you that you’re connected to something larger. You can’t breathe in isolation. With every breath you’re recycling breath that’s been breathed by your loved ones, your irritating neighbor, a petunia, your dog, Buddha… No such thing as a virgin breath.
By altering your breath you can feel more relaxed, more energized, more confident, more present, more intuitive… But before you start changing your breath, get acquainted first.
I’ve included a 4-minute breath meditation.
It’s something you can listen to often. What did you learn from your breath?
