But that discipline can be as simple as a 3-breath practice.
So next time you’re feeling stuck or chaotic, there’s a simple but transformational practice that only takes 10 seconds, but will put you in-tune with the magic of the stillness of the present moment.
Here’s what to do…
1. Close your eyes, and relax your mind.
2. Let go of the chaotic story you’re telling yourself
3. Pause and take three breaths, inhaling and exhaling through the nose. At the top of the inhale, hold your breath for as long as you can, and then genltly exhale through the nose. If you need to exhale through the mouth and gasp for air, you’ve held too long.
