Hit the pause button; a gift for you

Feeling a bit under the weather today, I decided not to write an entire blog article, BUT… I want to leave you with a Friday gift.  This is a brief mindfulness of breathing exercise that I recorded.  I must credit Duke Integrative Medicine with the written version of this exercise.  It is just over 6 minutes long, so can be integrated into your day or evening if you choose. 

I find that just spending a few formal moments each day, to pause and be present in our bodies, makes a big difference in how the day plays out.  We may still have to contend with things we may not like or feel comfortable with, but after days and weeks of taking a specific time out, the discomforts are more likely to just flow through and not hang on to us. 

Now, the difficult part is to just find a moment alone to listen.
