Focused & relaxed breathing helps to create more space in awareness between incoming information (stimulus) and our outgoing response… more space between our thoughts & our urges to act reflexively. In this breathing space, we may realize more appropriate choices for situations as we become better able to regulate the seemingly habitual and automatic tendencies we have in reacting to our thoughts & feelings.

Refining self-awareness & self-control- taking pause & breathing into our moments of choice– also allows space for clarity to arise. As our mind settles, we can rest in awareness with calm and relaxed alertness. We can become more meditative- more responsive- and less reactive. With time & practice, we can literally rewire the way our brain & body responds to incoming information…

REMEMBER to breathe space into your freedom of choice…
