Take a Breath

I am moving into my new office this week. Boxes are stacked up, I can’t find a thing. I was feeling a sense of chaos again.

When I got up this morning I tried to think what I needed to take with me and my mind went blank. It felt like a computer that locks up and nothing happens. I had too many thoughts going on at the same time and my mind just froze up like a computer does.

I sat down and took a deep breath. I remembered the title of a blog a friend Scott Colgazier writes called “Take a Breath ” http://rscolglazier.com/. I planted my feet on the ground, opened my hands up and started taking deep breaths, imagining the breath was coming from under my feet to the top of my head.  I would then exhale imagining the breath leaving my body from the top of my head to my feet. This might sound kind of weird, but it works for me. There is something in the breathing, slowly inhaling fresh spirit and exhaling all my worries. It is like rebooting the computer.

If you find yourself feeling scattered or out of focus take a moment and “take a breath.” You might be surprised how good it feels and the fresh perspective it gives you.

Be a Miracle
