Breathing is essential but are you really conscious of it's power? Breathing is our constant connection to life. It comes into the world with us and leaves when we depart. Deeper breathing leads to a longer life. Think of your breathing like a best friend, your closest companion. Take time every day to spend time just breathing. Take deep breaths. When you are flooded with feelings, use your breath to gradually release them. When you feel overwhelmed by the demands of life, allow your breath to calm you. Never go anywhere without it!
