Take a Deep Breath!

If you’re reading this then obviously you’re breathing. The question is what does breathing mean for you? Is it just that thing you automatically do all day, every day to stay alive? Or can it be something more also?

Breathing is obviously a necessary action in our lives. Thankfully, it is done for us on a subconscious level. However, breathing can be used as a tool as well. Changing the way you breathe can cause significant changes to your body and mind. Many people use breathing to relax or even get over something they’re upset about.

I feel it’s very beneficial to take time out of my day to purposefully breathe to relax and clear my mind. My iWatch even has an app for that. Taking 3-5 minutes to sit somewhere quiet and having some kind of rhythmic breathing can positively affect the rest of your day. Taking deep, slow breaths is usually the way to go for most people. I prefer counting to 3 on my in breaths and counting to 5 on my out breaths. Abraham Hicks also uses this rhythm in their guided meditation app.

This doesn’t have to be a big ordeal that you set a ton of time aside for. I find myself doing it most during the brief moments I step outside. Even a minute of deep breathing can really give you a boost. Especially if it’s fresh air outside.


I start every day off with 15 minutes of meditation to get my day off to a good start. This usually gives me a fresh starting point and thoughts of appreciation get momentum going in a good direction. As the day goes on and I interact with various people, I find it can be difficult to find the kind of thoughts I’d like to be thinking. This is when stepping out for a few minutes of breathing gives me the reboot I need. Afterwards, my head is much more clear and I can be much more deliberate with my thinking. Try this out and let me know what you think in the comments!
