I personally love starting my day with 10 deep breaths by the sea so I’m ready for the day ahead.
Breathing is something that we do subconsciously thousands of times a day. But how many times have you taken a moment to stop and concentrate on your breaths?
Deep breathing helps to utilise all of your lung capacity and so delivering more oxygen to your body helping you feel revitalised. It also helps to re-align your focus and give you clarity, particularly if you are feeling stressed or anxious.
We live in a world where we are constantly being told of things we need, for example a brand new phone, a shiny car or that new line of make up.
If we spend too much time fixating on this we can often get into a negative spiral, taking our focus and energy away from where it should be.
So how about refocusing on what’s best for you and not the advertisers. You can start by thinking of 1 goal that you want to achieve today and one that you want to avoid. This will help align yourself on what’s good for you and what’s bad for you.
For me I’d like to spend one hour today practicing a new piano piece and avoid take-away food.
