Breathing as a mindful practice
Take your mess and turn it into your message. Your struggles and how you overcome them can have a huge impact on the lives of others.
Joining a community of people who are going through similar experiences to yours could help you overcome your struggle. There’s nothing more fulfilling when you’re with people who encourage, uplift, and accept one another.
Take a moment to breathe, no matter how busy you are. Sometimes all you need to do is take a deep breath, relax, and let things go.
“Know you are equipped for this, you can do this. And a lot of it comes down to breathe…think about what we hold in the breath. Emotions, memories, anger.” — Clarissa Hidalgo
