Mantras in May :: Just Breathe

Do you feel the craziness that is May taking you by the throat and squeezing ever so gently. Over and over? Well, I do.

This morning as I was venting to Melissa via email, and then realizing I had today’s Mantras in May, she told me to Breathe. Just Breathe.

JUST BREATHE.

Just Breathe

Oftentimes we feel out of control. Crazy. Like there aren’t enough minutes in the day. We let stress get the best of us. Stopping throughout the day to take a nice cleansing breathe can help alleviate some of that stress and help put things into perspective.

This week, I want you to Just Breathe. When you’re at a red light. When you’re washing dishes. When you’re watching TV. When you’re stretching after a workout. Wherever you are, and whatever you’re doing, take a moment to stop and Just Breathe. Write it on a sticky note and put it on your mirror. Write it on your hand. Set an alarm on your cellphone. Stop and breathe.

Go here and read the 18 benefits of breathing. It opened my eyes, and made me realize how important it is to Just Breathe.

     You know Melissa L has “breathe” tattooed on her wrist? I think it’s pretty brilliant.  Can’t wait to hug the breath out of you on Friday.  I’ve missed you!

     Great advice! Which comes as no surprise since The Hood is all about great advice! I am going to follow it. We are in the midst of a bathroom remodel here. Workers coming at 7 a.m. all week, lots of activity = lots of craziness = lots of opportunities to Just Breathe : )

    It was also a reminder to myself. ;) I tend to get carried away and forget what really matters. Love you!
