Here at The Relaxation Center, we have found that enjoying life in our hectic, everyday busy world is possible - it is all a matter of how we handle being busy. Just stay calm. Easier said than done, right?
This fast paced life we live seems as though it is all we can do to try to keep up with increasing day-to-day demands. It seems that some of us are better than others in making time to enjoy life.
Ideally we can appreciate life all the time by being aware of our presence (presents). Breathing and being aware of our breath seems to one of the best ways for us to do this. When things get too rushed, remember to breath. Paying attention to the air going into and out of our body can help us focus on the fact that we are here right now and to do the best we can in this very moment.
These are some thoughts I have come to appreciate after many yoga classes with Ben at the Crunch Fitness in San Mateo. Yoga is more than exercise. Yoga is breathing, exercise, eating well, etc... For me the breathing seems to be an easy way to become aware of life more objectively and to make better decisions.
So for this month, let us become better at being aware of our breathing. We don't have to change the way we breathe, just to be aware of it. We can get more involved in different methods of breathing, but for us to become aware of it will be a great start. A link to some other breathing methods is listed below for those who want more information.
