Ahhhh! Doesn’t that feel better? This is a time of year when our ‘to do list’ gets longer and longer and we run around practically holding our breath. Sometimes in Urban Zen we advise a patient/client to notice their exhale. This can often slow their breath rate and relieve feelings of anxiety. When we exhale we release CO2 and other toxins and, create space for fresh oxygenated air which feeds our cells. As we exhale consciously, we can release thoughts that are not serving us in that moment creating spaciousness for the present. I invite you to take time to exhale. Maybe you pause several times a day and take 3 conscious breaths allowing your mind to focus on each exhale and feel your feet on the ground. I wish you and yours a healthy, happy Holiday Season!
