I’m not sure if its the recently much better weather (im writing this in March, after three days of not having to wear my ‘big coat’), or the fact that I’ve been meditating a lot recently, but the last couple of days I’ve really felt the power of a slow, deep breath.
I’ve read and heard it said many times, but it’s only the last few days I’ve really noticed enjoying it.
Take five or so mins, close your eyes and just notice your breathing.
Don’t try and control it, just notice it.
As you breathe in, say to your self
‘Deep breath in’
Then, ‘holding’ or ‘waiting’
Then ‘breathing out’.
Try it. Can you find the comfort in a deep breath?
If not, just keep doing it.
The noticing, and the breathing…
