Three Breaths

Breathing is such an important aspect to meditation to help us relax and settle into mindfulness. However, often we can not meditate. For whatever reason we are not in a position to sit on the cushion and do formal meditation.

I have learned something very simple and yet very powerful in helping us relax when we are driving in the car, sitting at work, etc.

Take three deep breaths and then exhale slowly. You will find that your whole body will relax and you'll feel more mindful and present in the moment. Sometimes I even close my eyes and visualize something relaxing like a Carribean beach. Although, if you are driving for example that is not the best idea. Hehe.

Anyway, give it a try and I bet that it will work for you.
