Take a Deep Breath

Every day contains its struggles and frustrations.

When the next unwanted surprise arrives, take a breath. A long, slow breath—perhaps the deepest breath you’ve taken all day. Notice the breath washing over your whole body.

Then, return to the moment.

There is a barrier between you and your reaction. The breath is the buffer that gives you the freedom to allow it all – even the anger, fear, and discomfort. Even the struggle is OK, because you are breathing right through it.
