Take Time To Breathe

So many of us run from one thing to another while life passes us by so quickly we can’t keep up. Today take time to breathe, slow down, and notice. Here are 5 ideas to heighten your awareness.

1) Stop – right now, whatever you are doing and notice how your body feels
2) Take 5 deep breaths – allow your belly to rise and fall and notice how it feels to breathe deeply
3) Notice all the colors around you – what do you see? Describe it in detail
4) Watch the clouds moving by – just notice and don’t focus too hard on any one
5) Pick three and try them at least 2x each today

By taking time each day to notice how we are connected to things around us, our life becomes richer. In addition, we begin to see the small ways life is beautiful, perfect, and mystical. Enjoy!
