Have you ever noticed that when you intentionally slow your breathing down to something like 5 or 6 seconds on the inhale, to 5 or 6 seconds exhaling that the world seems to stop? It’s fascinating.
For whatever reason, after doing this a few times my entire outlook on life seems fresh and clean. I have no idea why it works or what is really going on, but it’s a feeling that has become addictive. What’s incredible is when you apply this to real-life, real-time situations you can use it to find joy in the most stressful moments.
This seems so obvious, yet in the heat of the moment you can easily forget to take a breath. Like Ferris says…
Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
