Just breathe

Standard

Yesterday I was having a really difficult day. I was anxious and nothing I did was working to shake it off. At the beginning of yoga, the instructor asked us to lie back. What she said next was a beautiful gift to me. I’d like to share those words with you and maybe you can remember them in a time of need.

“For the next 60 minutes, all you have to do is breathe. Nothing exists inside this room. There are no to do lists. Yesterday is not invited and tomorrow is not welcome either. You are here, safe right now and all that is required is breathing in and out.”

The amount of pressure I walked in with started to float away. Right there, in that single moment I felt release. And for the next 60 minutes, all I did was breathe.
