Recently I was reminded to do a breathing exercise. It feels so good and took a short time to do. Then I ran across this quote from The Little Book of Mindfulness by Dr. Patrizia Collard:
“By observing your breath, you can make such a difference to how you feel”
Let’s take a bit of time today to do a bit of deep breathing or another breathing technique you enjoy doing.
