Breathe In Breathe Out

Meditation is one of my favorite practices to do. It helps me center and find new ways of thinking. I just tell myself to breathe in, breathe out.

There are times in this life that we are going to just have to deal with whatever gets tossed at us. That’s just inevitable. It sounds sucky to say but it’s the truth. Meditation is one of my favorite ways to get through those tough times. Frequently, I find myself in a situation that just plain sucks. I get blindsided at work, or at home. My husband or I have a bad day. Hell, there are times I just don’t want to adult.

Breathe in Breathe out

When it comes to our own mental and physical health, it’s difficult to remember to take those moments to breathe. Life throws us so many things to deal with on a daily basis that it’s a wonder we all don’t just curl up into a ball sometimes. Trust me, there are times that all I want to do is freeze the world out, grab a blanket and NOT breathe. I don’t mean that in a bad way. What I mean is, I want to just not be responsible for a while.

Tips on how to Breathe in and Breathe Out

  • Set time aside each day
  • Don’t do it reactively
  • Find ways to take “mindful” or “meditation minutes” each day
  • Pay attention to how you feel both BEFORE and AFTER you take a breathing session.
  • Journal about what the experience was like
  • Continue the practice whenever you need to

As with any list, this one is not exhaustive. I would also recommend going to a website like Calm and browsing their breathing and meditation exercises. I always find them helpful. If you decide to subscribe to their other services, you do get more perks but you don’t have to do that.
